The news log file expects a fixed syntax.  After "localhost", there should be
a message-ID.  But when it is not correctly parsed by INN (that is to say it is
an invalid message-ID), the string is empty:  it is '\0'.  That's why "(null)"
is written (another thing could also have been written instead).  Otherwise,
you would have had:

Apr 28 20:11:09.172 - localhost  439 Bad "Message-ID" header
