Looks like you could contact Johan van Selst (aka "johans"):

Why don't you just run "rc.news stop" as the news user?
You shouldn't have to kill innwatch, cnfsstat, innfeed, etc. (only nnrpd 
if run in daemon mode)

Don't you use BerkeleyDB database with ovdb?

Isn't there a syntax problem in your newsfeeds file?
No error mentioned by "inncheck -a --pedantic"?
