[Dirvish] expire rule doesn't work as desired

Hi Paul, thanks for the reply. I changed the rules to:

expire-default: +6 hours
expire-rule:
hr { 00,01 }    +7 days
wd { mon }      +4 weeks
md { 1 }        +2 months

But it seems that the rules doesn't match at all.

One backupset called 2015-08-23-00. Which means, made at 00:00 (see 
image-default). This should kept for 7 days but in the summary stands:

  Image-now: 2015-08-23 00:44:27
  Expire: +6 hours == 2015-08-23 06:44:27

Now another one, made this morning. 2015-08-24-01

  Image-now: 2015-08-24 01:04:56
  Expire: +6 hours == 2015-08-24 07:04:56

Is it maybe because im using another image-default format 
(image-default: %Y-%m-%d-%H)? What am I missing?

Best regards
Norman
