This is definitely quirky. Normally the expiry is stepped down until it hits 0, which is the expiry day, and this normally happens at around 23:20 UCT. After spending the next 24 hours at zero, the server would normally release the exponent for re-assignment, however just occasionally this doesn't happen and the expiry gets stepped down to -1, but usually it is then released on the next expiry run 24 hrs later. That's what has happened with this one, and it's currently still available for re-assignment (at 00:02 UCT on 22nd Jan). Why this happens I haven't a clue, but I've seen it happen on previous occasions. Probably George is the only one who can explain it!
