Well, the message IDs that Piet van Oostrum gave are symptomatic of
the References header bug and and just like he described, my newsreader
also shows Dennis Lee Bieber always replying to posts that don't exist.
Other messages might be getting eaten by the gateway, but the missing
posts that Piet is complaining about almost certainly never existed.
