Mew tried to retireve the article by Message-ID. This is
relatively unusual for newsreaders, most try to retrieve articles
by article number. In principle both should work equally well,
but the check whether a pseudo-article is requested is only made
when an article is requested by article number. This is a bug in
fopenart() in nntpd.c
