Giganews or SuperSearch problem ?

I am using NewsLeecher for the first day today. For some reason when I use Supersearch it only returns results within the last 51 days even though I have set it for max 100 days (Giganews Retention). Is this due to SuperSearch or Giganews ?

EDIT : I have found this 51 day limit seems to only happen for images, as rar files seem to go up to the full amount. Does this mean Giganews only has a 51 day image retention, or does SuperSearch bypass the news server and use its own cache ?

The SuperSearch server collects the headers from GigaNews among other servers. The 51 days limit does not apply to the GigaNews server itself. It is caused by the large number of posts in the pictures groups, which stresses the SuperSearch server.
