I am looking for some help about article counters in news clients:

On my newsserver (INN 2.3.2) are 22 newsgroups.
In 1 group I have troubles with the article counters, the others look
In that group (Group.i-en-a) physically exist 3028 articles.
Active file looks like this:

control 0000000000 0000000001 n
control.cancel 0000000012 0000000001 n
control.checkgroups 0000000000 0000000001 n
control.newgroup 0000000000 0000000001 n
control.rmgroup 0000000000 0000000001 n
junk 0000000000 0000000001 n
Group.i-en-a 0000004177 0000000003 y

Storage.conf looks like:
method tradspool {
        class: 1
        newsgroups: *

Different newsclients (Netscape, Outlook Express, Internet Explorer) say
there are 32549 articles in that group.
I tried:
unsubscribe/subscribe or reset group on the clients; 
"ctlinnd renumber ''" after rebuilding history on the server.

Where do the clients get that number 32549?
What do I have to do to get the actual article counter in this group?
