I think it does this if the crosspostings *do* exist, or at least that's
what the code looked like to me.  This whole section of code is rather
questionable and has various minor problems.

I've now suppressed the log message ahen the article is being
intentionally skipped, though, which should solve the problem that you ran
into.  That fix is now in both STABLE and CURRENT.
