Is nnrpdcheckart in inn.conf true?  If so, I bet that's the problem -- try 
attaching to nnrpd with gdb and seeing if it is frantically opening and 
closing articles to make sure they exist.

I don't have a good solution; I never had this problem until relatively 
recently, and it seems to have started suddenly despite the number of 
articles in my never-expiring groups growing at a steady rate.  I had to 
disable nnrpdcheckart, which is a user-visible change in trn (lots of 
"skipping unavailable article" messages while reading), for lack of any 
better ideas.
