Looking now, I think that might be it; the copy I'd been running up to
date stuff on wasn't using overview.

I'm still bothered about the symptom, though; innd went into an infinite
loop on its second OVgroupadd().  It might be enough to document somewhere
that if innd goes looping on startup and enableoverview is true, then the
NOV files are b0rken and need fixing.
