Not quite up to date, there have been texpire fixes although they were
officially unrelated. Not sure if they could resolve your problem as a
side effect.

In groups that have long-lasting discussion threads, it may be necessary
to use texpire -a (expire article-based rather than thread-based) to get
rid of older articles; some groups are known to have threads that least
well over a year, and only if the newest article in the thread is older
than "expire" will the thread expire without texpire's -a option.

If texpire -a does NOT help, let me know.
