Update: Not sure what was going on, but I've not had this with new posts for about two weeks now.

The strange thing is, that the test NZBs that I kept around, still produce said error.
Could this possibly be issues at my usenet provider (eweka), or some sort of combination of local and server issues?

If you're on Windows: AFAIK there has not yet been a new SABnzbd / SAByenc release for Windows. So ... same SAB, same errors. You have to wait for the new release.

On Ubuntu Linux, a new Sabyenc was released/pushed, on thus on Ubuntu it won't happen anymore.

Yes, if you have the PPA enabled and you do updates on your Ubuntu:

Ah, so it was a bug with SAB then?
Thanks, I'll retry when the new version is released :)

The NZB was wrong (with negative and thus illegal values for Segment Bytes, so negative message sizes ...), and SAB fell into that trap ...

Detail: the problem was in SAByenc, which is written in C. And you know what they say: C is like a chainsaw: fast, efficient, and very dangerous. ;)

Anyway: SAByenc and thus SABnzbd is protected as of now. On Windows: wait for the new release.

Just noticed an entire page of posts happened since the last time I checked (I tend to leave tabs open for a long time)... Thanks everyone for confirming it's definitely not just my hardware ^-^
