Although to be pedantic, you can get this message because some articles in
a given group are in tradspool; it's possible that others are in a
different storage method (for example, if particularly large articles go
in CNFS, or perhaps everything without an Expires header goes in CNFS),
and in that case it would be a mistake to expect tdx-util to rebuild
overview as desired.
