Well, makehistory "of course" deletes the messages, but when I
interrupted the process and did just that, sm showed the articles just

This seems to be the problem. The daily maintenance gives me a report
which mistakes the Message-ID with Path header, or something:

obviously this doesn't happen to everyone, so there must be something
wrong with my installation.
