The article numbering, for current versions of INN, is taken from the
overview information.  Nightly, news.daily runs expireover which picks up
those changes and adjusts the overview counts.

If you set nnrpdcheckart in inn.conf to true, this may cause GROUP to
return more accurate results, at the cost of a bit of a performance hit.
