Subject: (7.5) Expire had problems and won't run again after fixing the problem

When expire starts up it "reserves" the server so that nobody else can
pause or throttle it. This prevents anyone else from coming in and
modifying the history database. If expire bails out because of a bad
error (e.g., your expire.ctl has syntax errors) it leaves the server
reserved so that no maintenance will be done until a good expire run has
occurred. To unblock the server, use the ctlinnd "reserve" command with
an empty string argument. See also INN FAQ #7.46.
