The % shown is actually the position in the buffer that's being written
to.  The buffer is actually 100% full.  In this case, your buffer ONE0 is
6.9% of the way through the current write cycle, and the remaining 93.1%
is the articles left over from the last write cycle.

This is normal, the output is just misleading.
