I get this too. I've solved it! My solution is

create an extra file like (for example)



# cat bin/cronexpireall
cd /home/interchange
/home/ic/bin/expireall -r

and my crontab -l looks like

# crontab -l
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
# (/tmp/crontab.vjnfD23002 installed on Tue Jan  9 12:21:32 2001)
# (Cron version -- $FreeBSD: src/usr.sbin/cron/crontab/crontab.c,v 1999/08/29 15:40:42 peter Exp $)
45 0-23/2 * * * /home/ic/bin/cronexpireall

Good lucks!

I'm wondering about the result of expire and expireall.
I've in my catalog.cfg a "SessionExpire 1 hours", but "expire -u -r -c
mycatalogname" isn't working. There are still some session files, wich
is older than 1 hour and still there in the directory "session". What
is the cause? Thanks!
