Thanks for the advice, I changed it to
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
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.
