NOTE: The maintainers of the INN FAQ stopped publishing in December 1997.
An important update to this topic is provided by Mib Software in the Usenet RKT for Subscribers.

Subject: (5.2) Bad file number writing history file -- throttling

The system ulimit was set restrict files from growing beyond a certain
size and the history file was to large for the limit. Check the ulimit
setting for the news user.

The ulimit should be set to infinite. You need to figure out how to
set this for user "news" no matter if the user logged in, is running
from cron, or was run at boot up.
