More likely that the permissions/owners of the directory where articles
accumulate is wrong. Doesn't make sense though that it's able to create
files there but can't unlink them. If it's getting them into the
digests, then the file globbing must be working too.

Is the 'digest_issue' getting incremented? If not, then it sounds like
digest is unable to do the writeconfig after it increments it. If it
aborts in writeconfig, then the unlink never gets done because digest
never gets a chance to finish. In that case it would appear to be a
list-digest.config permissions/owners problem (or the parent directory).
