Well, automatic _can_ be better for the 90+ % of the masses who don't

(documented!) expertmode switch.

in the [rc564] section, starting at version 308. (306 didn't have it)

You could also do "maxbufferdays=x" with x another value instead of
4. 8 would be nice in your case. (also in the rc564-section)

So. Could we please END this thread now????
