That's rather violent. "Initialfetch" should apply in these cases, but
it's not set by default. Try initialfetch=500 or something.

It isn't normal, the server should NEVER reset its high article pointer,
and if it does, the admin should send advance warnings or reports so
users can nuke their .newsrc.

I tried injecting a message and a cancel into INN 2.3.3 (through POST),
while the article disappears from the XOVER list, the "GROUP" command
response does not lower the high number.

I can however imagine that file system or news spool damage (active file
regenerated) after processing cancels can cause this.

I know I've made some changes to leafnode to make sure it doesn't lower
its high article number and I hope I caught them all at that time.
