The article is crossposted

    Xref: news.daimi.au.dk aau:10219 daimi:15261

and the file $SPOOL/aau/10219 does not exist.

It seems that this is the problem.  That is a major flaw in makehistory ...

If I create a spool area with just the two files

    $SPOOL/aau/10219

and 

    $SPOOL/daimi/15269

then the makehistory runs fine, and the article is registered, and put in
the overview database, etc. etc.

I think I have narrowed down my experiences as far as I could ...
