Bug#4553: INN crashes

Package: inn
Version: 1.4unoff4-1

Recently our news server has begun to crash on a fairly regular basis. It
leaves behind the following core file:

-rw-r--r--   1 news     news     28004352 Sep 19 18:04 /var/spool/news/core

dalesbred:/var/spool/news:[34]% gdb =innd core

Cannot access memory at address 0x6e6f2e73.

The stack trace has been identical in each crash.

Any ideas?
