The issue is that in Summery buffer, Gnus only uses a very coarse
estimation of message count (yes, this sucks badly). What will probably
work is entering the group and only then saying /o 100 to get 100 old messages.

Have you ever considered how much text can fit in eighty columns?  Given that a
signature typically contains up to four lines of text, this space allows you to
attach a tremendous amount of valuable information to your messages.  Seize the
opportunity and don't waste your signature on bullshit that nobody cares about.
