You have enableoverview set to false in inn.conf? That looks like it
should completely disable the expireover stuff in news.daily.

/* Whitespace - clean the header up instead of rejecting it. Too many
servers are passing articles with whitespace along these days. On
May 12th, 2000, I rejected 18468 of 578846 articles because of this
lack of adherence to standards. -rhooper at thetoybox.org 2000/05/12 */
in art.c documents this change; the next revision of the news standards
will allow arbitrary whitespace and folding in the Newsgroups header and
this is a partial fix for that. (Although I don't think it handles
folding and it needs to.)
