May it be related to what Jeff spoke about last month?
"A bunch of my users were in agreement that they were seeing odd behavior
that correlated with XOVER malfunctioning (never seeing articles appear in
their newsreaders, mainly). Some were able to capture traces of the
incriminating sessions and it was pretty clear that garbled overview data
Though in your case it is a "replacement" of articles. And hmm your overview

I also notice that I have duplicate tokens on my server:
% wc -l tokens.sorted
% wc -l tokens.sorted.unic
A diff shows that I have a token which appear 4 times!
2 tokens appear trice, and the others twice.
Most of them were generated on April 1st-2nd like the one you detected.
It seems to appear in a row (consecutive articles in CNFS?). Samples
of my duplicated tokens:
According to what one of your user says in alt.online-service.comcast
the other newsgroup alt.sports.football.pro.cleve-browns is also messed up.
Do you see the two duplicates in OVER?
I do not know how tokens could have been mixed :-/
