Hi

In v2.4.2-STABLE-20050315 the man page  expire.ctl(5) says

     The <flag> field can be used to further limit newsgroups to
     which the line applies, and should be chosen from the
     following set:

         M   Only moderated groups
         U   Only unmoderated groups
         A   All groups
         X   Remove the article from all groups it appears in


Yet when I put this in my expire.ctl  (on line 46)

    *warez*:X:1:1:1

I get the following error from news.daily
    Line 46 bad modflag
    Format error in expire.ctl

and expire does not run

???

So is there a documentation error?
or a code error?
