Hi Thufir,

if you don't restrict the group lists with "only_groups_pcre" (see man 8
leafnode), then yes, it will try to fetch each interesting group from
each server that offers it - this is to fetch the union of all articles
from all servers.  This is done so you can make up for missing articles
on one server, by providing several servers that hold the same group.

The message.id/***/ "database" directories will prevent a known article
("dupe" or duplicate) from being fetched for a second time.
