I've been using gate_news to port a number of news 
groups to mailing lists.  It's worked well for several 
months, up until a week or so ago.  I am using FreeBSD 
4.3, Mailman 2.0.8, and Postfix (sorry, I forgot which 

Now, I'm re-getting older messages.  Today, the 21st, 
I'm getting messages as far back as the 15th and 16th.  
I am getting the current messages also.

What's stranger still is that a look in the archives I am 
keeping doesn't reveal the duplicate messages.  A look 
at the news server doesn't reveal any duplicate 
messages either.

I'm kind of stumped as to where to start looking for 
the problem.  When I review the mailq, all the messages 
look current, and I suppose that's correct in that they 
were fetched from the news server today.  Once they 
are email messages again, they are outdated.

Any hints greatly appreciated, thanks,
