[Dovecot] Dovecot Expire doesn't work

I know how the expire plugin (should) work.
I am actually happy that the expire-plugin works as is is defined.
However, the plugin does not work.
- the folder /var/mail/root is created (empty) for no reason (root mails
should be forwarded to me, stef)
- the mails in /var/mail/stef/Spam and/or /var/mail/stef/Trash are not
expunged after the determined time
As written in my original mail, I did a `strace`. In the strace, I see
that expire-tool 'reads' /var/mail/root and 'reports' that
/var/mail/stef has no e-mails.
So, I see two options:
- I made a configuration error (but I don't see it, and I did some
serious looking via google and on the wiki, but maybe it's so obvious I
didn't pay attention)
- there is a bug in expire-tool
I wrote this e-mail because I suspect the latter [but please inform me
if it's the first]
Thanks for your consideration
