The closer I look the more I get confused:

Nov 17 04:47:55 nnrpd[8520]: filter: Checking message 
<slrn20091109075439.943.twooffive at>
Nov 17 04:47:55 innd: localhost:172 bad_messageid 
<slrn20091109075439.943.twooffive at>
Nov 17 13:59:57 nnrpd[3373]: nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn post ok 
<slrn20091109075439.943.twooffive at>

This explains why the article exists on the server, but not why it was 
rejected on the first attempt and accepted on the second.
Looking at the time, I assume that at 04:47:55 the server was still 
running inn-STABLE-20091115 and I changed to inn-STABLE-20091116
some time between 05:00 and 05:30.
