I have this problem for a while. Every so often, my machine 
hangs over night. I have traced it down to relaynews. The process
runs for a while and then sits there. A couple locks(LOCK and 
LOCKinput) are there. At the early stage, logins are accepted but 
not later.

When I can login, I cd to my news control directory. If I do a ls,
it never comes back. As root, I do reboot, I receive something like

	syncing filesystem .... 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 give up

and of course, the next boot complains the demounting.

Does this have anything to do with my min configuration? I have 4M. 
I noticed whenever relaynews stopped, the next raw news files was
500K. Or it is because of my cnews package? I got it from utoronto 
and make it out of box. Anyone has a better port?

Any pointers appreciated.
