Inncheck problem in inn-BETA-20000530.tar

A couple of weeks ago I reported a problem with inncheck not recognising the
group based format of expire.ctl.  I've just installed (updated) my beta
installation, and I can tell that work has been done on inncheck, but the
logic still seems to be the wrong way round.  i.e. if groupbaseexpiry is true,
inncheck doesn't accept lines with a wildmat pattern at the beginning.

The expiry code also seems to be behaving strangely although I haven't
investigated this thoroughly yet.  I have an expire.ctl, most of which is
copied from my inn.2.2.2 installation.  Articles are not expiring as quickly
as I would have expected, although no error message is being generated.  This
may be misconfiguration, but its a bit of a co-incidence.
