tradindexed. (the server was set up pretty quickly after Clayton's code
was merged.)  Here are some excerpts from inn.conf:

hiscachesize:           0
overcachesize:          256
enableoverview:         true
useoverchan:            true
ovmethod:               tradindexed
storeonxref:            true
wireformat:             true

The two articles are: (apologies for linewrap)

% sm `grephistory '<7t3r6f$s0l$l at dosa.alt.net>'` | grep ^Xref
Xref: news.wanadoo.nl alt.binaries.sounds.mp3:3621219 alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.1960s:281589
% sm `grephistory '<7t3oi1$pj2$62 at weber.a2000.nl>'` | grep ^Xref
Xref: news.wanadoo.nl alt.binaries.sounds.mp3:3621219 alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.bootlegs:309736

The first article is in XOVER output: (it's a cut and paste so spaces and
tabs may be mangled, the line is wrapped for readability)

The second article was posted at 1:53 GMT, got assigned the same article
number for alt.binaries.sounds.mp3 somewhere and doesn't show up in XOVER.
I noticed that four more articles posted by that user in the same series 
had also gone missing.
