The last time I looked at nn, it did that too, always fetching the overview
for the entire group.  This is because the innards of nn are a horrid ancient
mess that still mostly thinks it's accessing a local proprietary 'nnmaster'
database, with the XOVER code trying to fake the structures the nnmaster-using
code wants, and nobody has had the courage to wade in to where the Dragons 
Lie and rewrite the large chunks of code that would be needed.
