It is on ext3. Here is the interesting thing. I run Texpire via cron every
other day. The mail which cron sends me only has the "group.name: n
articles deleted, m kept" line, but my news log file has all of the
restoring hard links in it. Oh, but no rereading your message, in cron I
don't run it with -vvv.
Let me go look at the logs today, because Texpire ran this morning. Yup,
once again, I have tons of restored hard links in my log this morning.
Let me know if there is anything I can do. Otherwise, I might just kill the
spool and start over. I would prefer to not do that, but if nothing else
