I told you last year that lots of these assertions errors were cleaned up
by Russ in INN 2.5.  I do not see any error on my INN 2.5 but I have a
very little feed so I believe it should be tested on a news server with
a full feed and several dozens of peers.

Has someone done that here?

No problem, INN 2.4.2 is fine too :-)
Unfortunately, I do not have time to backport everything from INN 2.5
but if someone has time, a patch for INN 2.4.4 is of course welcomed.
