You mention above that $gdb_white is set to 30 days, but the originaal
implementation you refer to at
http://www.bl.org/~jpk/md-greylist/mimedefang-filter-greylist has
these config. constants:

$gdb_black = 30*$minute;
$gdb_grey = 5*$hour;
$gdb_white = 7*$day;

And $gdb_white is 7 days (or 7*24*60*60 seconds).  Is it possible that
you set $gdb_white to 30 seconds, or 30 mins instead of 30 days?
