I may have expressed myself badly. doxover() may be called a second time,
with (xovergroup == group). In that case, getxover() will not be called
and a possibly outdated overview record (altered by some other process)
will be returned.

Therefore I suggested to write the code as

    if ( !pseudogroup ) {
	if ( getxover() )

and omit xovergroup altogether.
