I have tried to change message date in database older than 8 days and message is not removed. Seems that messages are not purged when auto purging is enabled.
This may be a problem in Joomla, I can't figure out.
Have you replicated this problem in MySQL enabled Joomla? If you have the same error over there, then the problem is in Joomla itself, not in ported version. Please test with MySQL.
Tested and it works. Actually the purgeMessages is called when user logins. So to remove old messages you have to logout/login again.
So, this is not a bug? Is this the default action with MySQL as well?
