I think the problem comes from the fact you did not stop INN before
playing with its active list.
Usually, the actsync program is used to keep the active file in sync
with ftp.isc.org; have a look at:
> So, I stopped INN, and I got the funny error message ftp://ftp.isc.org/
> pub/usenet/CONFIG/Stopping innd: ctlinnd: no innd.pid file; did server

Does the contents of the active file look OK?
(Lines of newsgroup names followed with numbers?)

No; it would not give any error like this.
