Sometimes I was wondering why Gnus downloads several MBs when the group
only has a few new articles, too.

At least it seems to work here with a fresh CVS Gnus.

Sorry, but that's too advanced for me. First I would try to check if
it's a real bug. Perhaps try setting

     (setq nntp-record-commands t)

which sends nntp-commands to Buffer *nntp-log*. Then you can see which
articles it fetches and see if it acts correctly. Helping to fix a bug
(if it really is one) is much better than working arround it.
