The news server had a failure to properly see the drive that contains
the spool (and libs) for news, and was frozen when I came in this morning;
after a number of attempts, I left the machine and drive bays shut down to
cool off before trying it again, and it is now seeing the drive and running
the scans mentioned earlier.  ETR a few hours, but I'll keep an eye on it
in case it needs to restart manually.
