Looking at the innfeed code around this, this would appear to indicate
that you have two articles stored on disk, or at least in the history
file, with the same message ID.  How you got there, I'm rather not sure.
Is the nightly report reporting duplicate articles?

I don't think I've seen the error messages that result from having
ppport.h not commented out; could you send them along?  Thanks.
