It appears to me that expire-tool quit when a message had a Date header forged to be non-expired, despite the message being old enough to have been expired. A bug in expire-tool?

expire-tool should have been looking at save-date, which with maildir is
taken from the file's ctime. So I don't know why a Date: header would
have caused any of this..

Anyway, v2.0 has this feature entirely rewritten.
