I just upgraded my test server to inn-STABLE-20020116 and decided to 
switch the overview from tradindexed to ovdb.

My question: how dow the overview rebuild process differ from what
I used for tradindexed (as follows)?

  ctlinnd pause overview rebuild
  cd ~news/spool/overview
  rm -r ./[a-zA-Z]*
  cd ~news
  makehistory -O -x -F
  ctlinnd go overview rebuild

Obviously the filenames change for ovdb. Do I still throttle/pause
the server and remove everthing in the overview directory before
running makehistory?
