Tradindexed cache entries

Hi,

This night, tradindexed started complaining with:
Feb 21 02:54:46 news innd: tradindexed: unable to find oldest cache entry

This error is logged by tdx_cache_insert when it does not find
the oldest entry.
I do not know why the entry suddenly became unavailable :-/


Anyway, I ran tdx-util and fixed errors of incorrect counts in two
newsgroups and newsgroups no longer present in the active file.
After that, the error stopped appearing.  Instead, I had:
Feb 21 10:14:49 news innd: tradindexed: cannot open 
/home/news/spool/overview/f/s/e/fr.sci.electronique.DAT: Trop de fichiers ouverts
Feb 21 10:14:49 news innd: SERVER cant store overview for 
@030346523200000000000029D7B100000002@

Trop de fichiers ouvers == Too many open files


May I have inode issues?
It is strange that it is the first time something like that has happened.

I stopped and restarted INN to fix the problem.
Not a good approach though...
If anyone has a suggestion for why it happened and what to search for
if it ever happens again, do not hesitate to tell.
