O.K. so here's the weird thing: It has spontaneously started working. I
don't get it.

Thanks,

You know that some news readers are smart enough to handle cross posted
articles, so that if an article is posted to a, b and c, one if you've
read the article in any one of a, b OR c, you won't see it again in the
other groups.

If you're using trn, for example, you may want to make all articles unread
(either U or u, I never remember which -- if you unsubscribe instead of mark
unread, you know you got the wrong one), and check again.
