AFAIK, you're right, older PGP versions don't handle chagned expiration 
dates correctly. You can, however, use gpg --edit and delete the older 
selfsigs, and send that modified key to the PGP user (he will need to 
delete your key, of course, and not update it from anywhere else, or 
the old selfsigs will be there again...)
