Okay, just want to get something straight here...if I run makehistory -O
-x after starting up rc.news, and after having wip'dout my overview
buffers, readers will so no articles in those groups until the overview
records have been recreated again...right?

The reason I ask is that I just got things started up, and am running the
above command and started up my newsreader, and I see no articles where I
should have seen some...so either this doesn't work with buffindexed, or
I'm slightly better off now then before...
