} That looks like it is still expiring something.
} Or am I missing something?

'Article lines processed' at expireover shows how many
articles(cross posted one is counted as # of newsgroups)
are processed.  It shows 21 articles.  OTOH, expire shows
63 as 'Article lines processed'.  There is a differenece
between the two, and this means overview includes entries
of 21 articles and history includes entries of 63 articles.
It looks like some of overview data is dropped before
expiry.  Anyway, history never purges article in your case,
and it seems to drop gone articles.

} does this affect it?
} /remember/:10
} 
} can I set that to never?

You can.
