Windows 7: Windows 7 Expiration

Windows 7 RC 7100
Windows 7 Expiration

(Please make note of the date, well into 2010.)

I'm currently using RC 7100. Lately I've been getting alerts about expiration within 11 days, when I'm certain I'm supposed to be able to use it through to June.

Here's what slmgr says:
License Status: Initial grace period
Time remaining: 41280 minute(s) (28 day(s))
Evaluation End Date: 6/1/2010 4:59:59 PM
Remaining Windows rearm count: 2
Trusted time: 2/18/2010 9:24:41 AM
I've already tried /rearm once, but the alert still shows. I am curious that Time Remaining says "28 days", and that the given expiration would end up being on 3/1.

Any cause for concern, or should I consider getting retail sooner?

Windows 7 Expiration Question
Hi All, I'm a little curious lately about when my RC copy of Win7 will time out. From the looks of it (and I may be completely wrong here since I've not kept up with current news) the official release is going to be delayed, so will the RC still time out at some point before that? Or will it...
