Whoops, that should be that /var/lib/news has 42% free. I've just upped the
partition to 300 Meg (now 62% free) and re-run news.daily.
The expire process appears to have completed successfully this time...
Can the 'temporary' history files generated during an expire be stored
somewhere else? It seems a waste to have to allocate twice as much space to
the /var/lib/news partition than it needs during normal running...
