If you are running Balance Forward, Emerald is acting properly.
Just like you are still allowed to use your credit card if you keep
making minimum payments, your customer will still be allowed to
use the system as long as /they/ make minimum payments. Their
expiration will continue to extend, however they will rapidly
approach whatever you have set as the balance limit since they
aren't paying off fast enough. The balance limit is what is looked at
rather than the expiration date.
