This is due to the agent. Several people mentionned this bug 
in this newsgroup. Deleting entries in .overview probably won't solve
the problem (it didn't for me).

Try to set gnus-agent to nil for your mail groups in your init file, e.g.

(setq gnus-parameters
    (gnus-agent nil))))

or go to the *server* buffer (^ in the group buffer) and disable the agent
by typing J r in front of the mail groups.

Since this bug affects several people, please report it (M-x gnus-bug).
The reason is unclear apparently. Did you try to connect
with a different mailer or from a different ISP to your account ?
