Summary0000443: global history expires incorrectly
DescriptionChoices... > Security > Site history enables the retention period of Global history to be set, in the range 0 - 365 days.

My copy is set to 3 days but the Global history always contains older entries.

Today being Wednesday, my Global history correctly contains entries in Yesterday, Monday, and Sunday. It also incorrectly contains several entries in Last week, 2 weeks ago and 3 weeks ago.

This occurs with all versions of NetSurf including (30 Sep 2007) r3613

Using NS 1749 (10 Mar 2014) the problem remains as described in my original report, above

Are the pages that remain beyond three days also in your hotlist? It doesn't expire things that are in the hotlist.

Also, it only prunes entries on exit, if I remember correctly. So you'd need to quit and restart NetSurf for anything to get expired.
