This means that fetchnews first attempted to store the article as 24037
(because - according to the groupinfo file - this should be the first
free number) but already found an article with this number present. In
this case, it adds one to the article number, tries again. Well, seems
24038 is also already present, therefore the whole process is repeated
unless a free number is found.

So, there is nothing to be worried about, and it should be fixed after
the next run of fetchnews or texpire (except if one of those crashes).
