Problem with INN


I've recently started to see a problem with INN whereby the news.daily
script doesn't successfully complete, and leaves the server reserved.

Further investigation shows the following errors in the news.daily report:

expire begin Tue Dec  6 13:47:03 GMT 2005: (-v1)
    expire: dbzsync: putcore failed
    expire: dbzinit: dbzinit already called once
    expire: can't dbzinit /var/lib/news/history Success
    expire: dbz: fseeko failure in putconf: Bad file descriptor
    /usr/lib/news/bin/news.daily: line 1: 32095 Segmentation fault
expire end Tue Dec  6 13:47:15 GMT 2005

I figured this might point to a corrupt history database, so I rebuilt it
using the following command (with the server stopped)

su news -c "/usr/lib/news/bin/makehistory -O -T /tmp"

However, the '.hash' and '.index' files appear to be incredibly large given
the size of the history file. Is this normal?

gently:~# ls -l /var/lib/news/history*
-rw-r--r--  1 news news   833107 Dec  6 14:06 /var/lib/news/history
-rw-r--r--  1 news news       46 Dec  6 14:06 /var/lib/news/history.dir
-rw-r--r--  1 news news 60000000 Dec  6 14:06 /var/lib/news/history.hash
-rw-r--r--  1 news news 40000000 Dec  6 14:06 /var/lib/news/history.index

Can anyone offer any suggestions?
