} I currently have 36 articles in control.cancel.

I suspect there is huge gap among those article number.
If so, this happens, since tradindexed reserves all
indices between hi and lo articles whether all exist
or not.  Work around for fixing this is;

1. pause innd
2. remember hi mark for control.cancel
3. rmgroup control.cancel by ctlinnd
4. delete(cancel) too old messages
5. delete control.cancel.{DAT|IDX}
6. newgroup control.cancel by ctlinnd
7. edit active to modify hi mark (use number at #2)
8. reload active
8. go innd
