I do not know what could be the issue.  I do not see the problem on my 
news server.

I think it is more related to your system.  Telnet'ing your news server 
takes a long time!  47 seconds for the following answer right now:

$ telnet 119
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
502 You have no permission to talk.  Goodbye!
mcount: gmon.out: Permission denied
Connection closed by foreign host.

Also, I still believe there is an issue in your installation of INN. 
Maybe related to your PATH or your configure options.

In can.canet.stats, where you post your innreport stats, it is totally 
abnormal to see about 100,000 unknown entries.  The first 50 ones show 
lots of innfeed and innd checkpoints, that hopefully are *not* unknown 

You should check the "mcount: gmon.out: Permission denied" I often read 
in these reports, and even when telnet'ing your news server!
Do you build INN with profiling support?

Incidentally, I do not understand how nnrpd can send this line.  I do 
not remember having seen such direct outputs, unless there is somewhere 
a redirection of error messages (?!)
