It is on ext3.  Here is the interesting thing.  I run Texpire via cron every
other day.  The mail which cron sends me only has the "group.name: n
articles deleted, m kept" line, but my news log file has all of the
restoring hard links in it.  Oh, but no rereading your message, in cron I
don't run it with -vvv.

Let me go look at the logs today, because Texpire ran this morning.  Yup,
once again, I have tons of restored hard links in my log this morning.

Let me know if there is anything I can do.  Otherwise, I might just kill the
spool and start over.  I would prefer to not do that, but if nothing else
