I'm pretty sure expire plugin is broken with this version. v1.1.17 had
the last fixes to it.

The wiki is written a bit badly there. The expire-tool.sh is included in
the v1.2.x section in the wiki page. I'll try to clean it up a bit.

The problem has never been that expire plugin deletes mails too early.
It's always been that it doesn't seem to delete anything.
Many thanks I shall forget the expire plugin for now and worry about
upgrading the whole system instead. Off to do some more reading.
