Problems moving newsserver from 32bit to 64bit

Hi

I do wonder if other people using inn in 64-bit mode (on Linux) see an  
error we keep registering in our news.err on all our 64-bit installs.  
Never found a good reason behind the error .. :(

Jul  9 22:05:49 spool nnrpd[2180]: CNFS-sm: fudge size overflows  
bitmaps @0314737431350000000007BD8AC50000000C@ st15:0xed14199000:  
2089757705

The 2089755705 seems a bit big for an article ;)

(inn 2.4.4, snapshot 20070610 spool with 16x 1.4TB CNFS buffer ... )

bye,
Chris
