I am consistently getting a SYS3175 when scrolling down in a post to the last
line, the following shows up in the POPUPLOG.OS2:

No.

Can you open a command prompt and cd to your \pronews directory and run

showhead name.of.the.group.affected

This will spit out some output that contains the filenames of the files that
contain the data for that group - e.g.

[I:\pronews]showhead local.test
headers.idx contains 64 group entries
Read group entries from headers.idx and closed file
Successfully opened file .\HEADERS\0235731c.IDX
Information from file .\HEADERS\0235731c.IDX for group local.test
[snip]

now zip up and send me all files in \pronews\articles\0235731c.*
\pronews\headers\0235731c.* (obviously changing the filenames to match the ones
returned by showhead on your system).

This doesn't happen here with the files you sent me but maybe I am not scrolling
down in the same way that you are (there are several different ways to scroll
through a post).
Can you and Al please tell me what method of scrolling you usually use when you
see this problem.
I have an IBM ScrollPoint optical mouse. Using Mouse driver v10.152, dated
Jan-03-2005.

I am using the 'scroll stick' on the mouse to scroll through the posts. My mouse
object is set to use "Simulated Keys", they are defined as follows (text copy
from the HELP screen below), but I do NOT have either one of the options
checked, so I actually assume the mouse is sending arrow up/down events to the
window:

======== START ============
Scroll type

This function specifies the type of scrolling to be done if enabled. If
scrolling is enabled, the user can choose between PM Scroll and Simulated keys
scrolling.

None - Scrolling is disabled for all scrollable (wheel, stick, TrackPoint and
other three button mice) devices.

Use PM Scroll - Presentation Manager scroll messages are sent to active window
when scroll events are detected. Scrolling is determined by window settings. The
cursor does not move with the window.

Always send scroll messages - Scroll messages are sent to windows including
those that do not have visible scrollbars. Some applications may experience
problems with this feature. It should be disabled to have scroll messages sent
to windows with visible scrollbars only.

Use Simulated Keys

Use PageUp/PageDn - Defines how fast the cursor changes position vertically.
When checked, the scroll rate will change from single line scrolling to multiple
line scrolling. Scrolling with an ordinary three button mouse is based upon the
acceleration of mouse movement. An ordinary three button mouse is more effective
if the scrolling speed is set to fast. When unchecked, the scroll rate remains
constant from line to line.

Use Ctrl+Left Arrow/Ctrl+Right Arrow - Defines how fast the cursor changes
position horizontally. When checked, the scroll rate will change from single
character scrolling to word boundary scrolling. When unchecked, the scroll rate
remains constant from character to character.
========== END ===========

Same here. It's not exactly consistent. Sometimes, I'll scroll to the
end of the post and PN will die, and if I fire it back up, look at the
same post and scroll to the end, it will die again. Other times, it
will not (on the same post).

I seem to see it maybe five times a month? Maybe a bit more.
