     History got corrupted.  I attempted to do some things which remove bad
entries and then sync history with the spool on friday but it failed.

     I've had to blitz the history and rebuild from scratch, a slow process
owing to the fact that there are approximately 8 million articles on the box.

     The rebuilding of the history database is still in progress.  The
alternative would have been to blitz all the articles.
