Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-01-24 05:52:51 UTC
The crash recovery code in /etc/rc.d/rc.news in the inn package depends on
being able to determine that inn crashed because /var/run/news/innd.pid
exists before innd is running.  But /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit blows away

This means that whenever the system crashes and comes back up, News ends up
in an inconsistent state, with article numbers being reused, bogus overview
data for the reused article numbers, etc.  Yuck.
