Originally I was sending a date.  You told me that locatime: only
gets invoked in the absence of a date, so I removed it.  When I
realized no change in nnrpd's behavior I added those debug lines to
find out why.

The debug output shows that nnrp thinks it got a date header.  It
didn't.  Maybe it's initalized as true and not reset.  From my mail to
you on the 22nd:


Here is the entire article input to nnrpd:
