I'm a little confused here.  If expire truly is expiring the articles, 
they'd be gone from the disk entirely and you wouldn't be able to make 
them reappear simply by rebuilding the databases.

I'm assuming you're using tradspool storage and tradindexed overview, but 
please say so if that's not the case.
