I would have liked to advise you to use Berkeley DB 4.7 (much more stable
than 4.6) but there is still no backport on Lenny.
Anyway, as I notice duplicates on my tradindexed overview, chances are it
is not related to ovdb.  Besides, the code for storage and overview is
separated:  the token is generated, the article is stored on the disk
and then stored in the overview database.  It is possible that the article
is not stored in the overview but when it occurs, it has no impact on
the history file and the token is not made available again.

My earliest is in March 2008.  Maybe the problem has always been here.

Strange.  And does it do something special to innd?
Do you see something in news.notice just before the arrival of
an article with a duplicate token?
