It seems that the setting in the will have no effect on 
already existing passwords. It is a flag in the JDOUSER table. However, you 
cannot manually change this flag (I've tried), because it has influence on 
the password's hash value. You can inspect the data record now, if tghe 
value is 0, your password should not expire.

Actually I was tempted to switch to Nexus also.
