Assuming that the count for "overview data stored" is a count of how many
article records appear, and remembering that there's one article record for
each *group* an article appears in, yeah, that's not too far out of whack.
Last time I looked (more than a couple years ago), the average # of groups
an article was crossposted to was ~1.2; it's not too surprising if it's now
up to about 1.4.
