Hi Bo,

Oh, thanks for the patch.  That's perfect!
I've rebuilt my overview, and only got 2 write errors from makehistory 
(both of them were duplicate overview entries, for a reason I do not 
know, and the article is correctly present in ovsqlite).
The 28 other write errors I had no longer show up.

As for the crosspost example to an unknown group:

select * from artinfo where artnum=4634 and groupid=350;
=> no article


select * from artinfo where artnum=4634 and groupid=350;
=> found

Thanks Bo for your fast patch and having made it work perfectly.

I'll report tomorrow the result of the expiry process.

Regarding your questions, I'm only aware of this one you probably 
already know, and too high-level for what you are looking:
