Thanks for the advice, I changed it to

   /usr/local/news/bin/rc.news stop
   cd ~news/spool/overview
   rm -f /usr/local/news/db/group.index
   dd if=/dev/zero of=OV1 bs=4k count=100 conv=notrunc
   /usr/local/news/bin/makehistory -x -O -l 100000
   /usr/local/news/bin/rc.news

and, for the first time, overview is expanding and contracting as it
was designed to.

expireover is also now taking a reasonable amount of time

	expireover start Sun May  7 03:08:42 BST 2000
	expireover end Sun May  7 04:23:18 BST 2000

Thanks again for your invaluable help.
