Yes, you can delete the article-cache directory completely and pan will

of deleting it, and then I can always put it back if something breaks.

I tried it, but no change. In fact, it insisted that all the messages in
my group were unread...

Hm, that's a bit worrisome.  Deleting article-cache has nothing at all to
do with read/unread.  That's recorded in your .pan2/newsrc-<N> file, where
N is the number of the particular newsserver in question.

I hate to be a party-poop, but whenever I see that kind of inexplicable
strangeness, I begin to wonder about file-system corruption.  Have you
tried an fsck on the partition in question lately?
