need help killing overview, getting desperate!

OK folks, I need help to fix this finally.

I built a transit box using the release download of inn2.3.

I configured inn.conf to not use overviews

enableoverview:         false
groupbaseexpiry:        false
mergetogroups:          false
overcachesize:          15
storeonxref:            false
useoverchan:            false
wireformat:             false
xrefslave:              false

ovmethod:               tradindexed

Please tell me if any of this is wrong. Should ovmethod be set to 
none or is this overridden by enableoverview: false as would be 

Also I checked that inn knows not to make overviews by

bash-2.03$ innconfval enableoverview

However, it is still creating stuff in spool/overview and I see this 
in the daily report under timers

overview write   03:52:08.096  16.1%    1017088    10.162     13.694     27.821

so it is misbehaving somewhere.

Also, the overchan entry in newsfeeds is firmly commented out so its not that.

##  News overview
## overchan is needed both enableoverview and useoverchan is true

Any tips appreciated muchly!
