As I mentioned previously gnus-group-compact-group works great for
eliminating gaps in article numbers.

I realized that, since gnus-group-compact-group copies the files, those
previously marked E might not expire before nnmail-expiry-wait days
after running gnus-group-compact-group.  But that is not happening.

In my main mail group I have a large number of messages that arrived in
May and were marked E.  On 16 June I ran gnus-group-compact-group.
Since nnmail-expiry-wait is 31 (see below) they should have disappeared
a few days ago but have not.

Any help would be appreciated.
