I have more issues with my incoming.conf now. While inn generally
starts up fine, it frequently (but not always) crashes on "ctlinnd
reload incoming.conf". Sometimes, it logs "SERVER '}' unexpected line
236 in /etc/news/incoming.conf" before crashing, but it does not do
this always. Just restarting inn works fine.

I have put up my incoming.conf for download on and would
appreciate if no newsgroup lists and/or peer names would end up in a
public archive. I am going to remove this file soon.
