newsgroup files for the misbehaving group

Thunderbird 17.0.7, openSUSE 12.3. 
This bug is similar to 20422, 506933, 558303 but not the same:
Do the following:
1. Refresh messages
2. Click on a news group list, e.g., www.nlzero.com:hamradio.the_shack
3. Select a thread, e.g., RTTY: 
     a. Messages newer than four days ago are missing.
4. Navigate View > Sort by > Group by Sort:
     a. The missing messages appear.
5. Navigate View > Sort by > UnThreaded:
     a. The messages disappear.
6. Navigate View > Sort by > Threaded:
     a. The messages remain invisible.
7. Go to 4 above: 
     a. the sequence remains the same.

This repeatable: happens repeatedly. I have gone through all the menu options, I have closed, reopened, rebooted. Nothing makes the missing messages reappear except a direct search or the steps in 4. above.

The messages *were* visible until last night. I must have clicked *something, but I don't know what. They are not archived, tagged, ignored. 

I'll be glad to experiment further, but don't know where to go to do that. Let me know.

I don't think it happens with regular mail accounts, at least I haven't seen it yet. Just the NNTP threads.

Obviously all messages should remain visible, regardless of sort order.

Attached the newsgroup_file.msf; the newsgroup_file.dat reads
     Version="9"
     Logging="no"

I don't understand how you get to 3a "missing messages".
If you still see this issue please update the bug
