controlchan and lots of removals

Hi,

Interesting what happened an hour ago:  30 removals of newsgroups in the fr.* hierarchy.
controlchan happily played with them and made a little mess.

During that, communication does not work very well between servers (especially INN servers)
because all of them are busy processing these control messages and close/open/close/open
their connections.
I also tried to post several messages during that time (and also a few minutes afterwards)
and I noticed a general slowness for the propagation.


With Fred's patch for adding a delay before processing all the control messages received
within n seconds, I think it was better.  Do you confirm, Fred, if you read us?


Usual logs are:

[and again and again]



I imagine what it is for servers which have lots of peers (more of them are started/closed).

I see some "cant read" and "source lost . Exiting" too.
