Thank you very much for this precision.

I dropped the -U and -T options and managed /etc/cyrus.conf with:

nntp          cmd="nntpd -f" listen="nntp" prefork=1

... and then:

nntp          cmd="nntpd -f" listen="nntp" prefork=3

... but unsuccessfully.

I tried several times, also with different -U and -T values but again 
nntpd stopped after few minutes.

I missed something and don't know what.
