I have taken to running trn as an alias:

trn     env TMPDIR=/usr/tmp trn ; egrep '[0-9]{8}' ~/.newsrc

So when I exit trn, it immediately greps my .newsrc for bogus numbers.

Thing is... I don't recall actually seeing this for a while... but then
again... I have also taken to having a cron job which kills trn on a
nightly basis so it can update .newsrc behind it's back.  I do wonder if
those are correlated...
