That makes a lot off difference. Thanks.

I changed this to:
    (gnus-demon-add-handler 'gnus-group-expire-all-groups "01:40" 60)

It takes a little more as a minute and I am not only using GNUS. Would
be annoying when I am editting a file and I can not do anything because
GNUS is expiring. Once a day is more as enough and I hope not to be
working around 01:40. ;-}
