We're working on it.  It has to do with the information available to the
filters.  When no date header is available, the age-function returns the
value 1000+ as an error code, which gets interpreted as the actual age
of the article.

We could do a quick workaround, but what's needed is a partial redesign
to integrate both Lua-based and "regular" filtering.  We want to offer
both options.  The Lua-only version (without a setting for "filterfile")
doesn't have this problem, and older releases from 2008 without the Lua
compile time option don't have it either AFAIK.

Again, I am sorry for the fallout of my Lua additions.  I concentrated
entirely on Lua, both the C-side and the Lua application, but of course
I'll help with the repairs.  In the end leafnode-2 will again be an easy
to use and stable product, the required changes are not that
