I do not know exactly on which elements tin decides to announce new articles
in a newsgroup.  If it is only from LIST ACTIVE or GROUP commands, then
the problem will go on existing because the high water mark is higher
than before -- so tin (as well as other news readers) may mention that
new articles are in the newsgroup.
If it is from LISTGROUP commands, then I doubt anything has been fixed
and I do not know what would be going on.

However, if it is from (X)OVER commands, then yes, the problem will be

These values should be adjusted according to your needs.  We're just
giving default values (which were increased in INN 2.5.0, compared to
the default values in INN 2.4.x).

Note that there is no patch for the default configuration.  It will not
change in INN 2.5.2.
