Whoa hang on, why did explicitly asking for the 'expiry-wait parameter
return nil before, then? Can you test that again? If 'expiry-wait is
present in the alist, we should have gotten 2 from the earlier call.

Anyway, something is setting this parameter to two days, so I'm guessing
that your imap messages are getting expired, but not until two days
later, so it might look like nothing is happening. Is that possible?

Have you configured the `gnus-parameters' option? Or set an
`expiry-wait' parameter for this group in particular? Two days isn't a
default value anywhere...
