inn-2.3.0, ctlinnd renumber fails after makehistory -O

inn-2.3.0, on Irix 6.5, with 

ovmethod:               tradindexed

method tradspool {
       newsgroups: *
}

I have rebuilt my history and overview databases, and now I have trouble
with some newsgroups.  It is apparent e.g. with ctlinnd renumber.

$ grep ^daimi.misc /news/db/active
daimi.misc 0000016284 0000015802 y
$ ctlinnd renumber daimi.misc
Ok
$ grep ^daimi.misc /news/db/active
daimi.misc 0000016284 0000016285 y
$ awk < $PATHOVERVIEW/d/m/daimi.misc.DAT '{print $1}' | sort -n | sed -n -e 1p -e \$p
15802
16284
$ ls $SPOOL/daimi/misc/{15802,16284}
/news2/articles/daimi/misc/15802  /news2/articles/daimi/misc/16284

What's going wrong here?  Apparently, innd doesn't even read the overview
data to do the renumbering.

$ ls -ltu $PATHOVERVIEW/d/m/daimi.misc.*
-rw-rw----    1 news     news      116785 Nov 21 08:45 /news1/overview/d/m/daimi.misc.DAT
-rw-rw----    1 news     news       22280 Nov 20 21:24 /news1/overview/d/m/daimi.misc.IDX
$ ctlinnd renumber daimi.misc
Ok
$ ls -ltu $PATHOVERVIEW/d/m/daimi.misc.*
-rw-rw----    1 news     news      116785 Nov 21 08:45 /news1/overview/d/m/daimi.misc.DAT
-rw-rw----    1 news     news       22280 Nov 20 21:24 /news1/overview/d/m/daimi.misc.IDX

If I connect to the server, I get:

group daimi.misc
211 0 0 0 daimi.misc

and 'listgroup daimi.misc' gives a completely bogus article list ranging
from 74 to 556, and $PATHOVERVIEW/d/m/daimi.misc.IDX has been read.



I'm at a complete loss to understand what's going on, and my server is
malfunctioning.  I would very much appreciate any help you can offer.
