this sounds like the problem, that I saw.

There is still a mismatch (at least in RedHats glibc-960906-1) between the
buffer size of a setbuf() call and BUFSIZE. While setbuf will setup a buffer
of _IO_BUFSIZ, which is 8192 bytes, BUFSIZ is 1024.

So when your inn uses setbuf() for it's logbuffer, it will lose, because
inn will give a too small buffer to setbuf(). This problem should be
fixed in inn-1.4unoff4-2.src.rpm.


See, you not only have to be a good coder to create a system like Linux,
you have to be a sneaky bastard too ;-)
