I recently had someone point out that when they were looking through files
backed up for their node (billing time!), they found a backup that is
INACTIVE and has been since 02/23/2012.  The file is an ordinary TAR file -
3.2GB in size.

The reason this is an issue is the Management Class for that node/PD is set
for *180-days* for RETO?

So, why would an expired/deleted backup not roll-off?

 Yes, EXPIRE INVENTORY runs automatic/daily (checked the logs for the past
2-months to confirm).

Server is Linux  (I have looked at the 6.2.4 updates and didn't see
anything that should effect/address this).
