This bug has been reported quite a couple of times now. I'm working on a -2
release, but INN is a very big package and I cannot do more then one or
two test-builds a week so progress is slow.
In the mean time, edit /etc/news/boot and add "-l0" to the startup flags
for INN, this will remove the size limitations (see manpage for innd).
