I found a workaround for extending voucher expiration dates. I booked a refundable ticket and then cancelled it. They reissue a voucher which has a new expiration date  (one year.) I did this on Continental, no issues. (Being that refundable are very expensive I had to book  a one way ticket.)
Don't know when you did this, but I know a few ppl who've done this recently and ran into problems

It's all about the timing...people that have no patience will get burned.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I've done this with AA except I used the credit from a non used flight and booked a cheap $30 ticket then they mailed me a voucher with another year form that date. Also it seems like AA paper vouchers can be used on a different name if mailed in. It saved me from losing a $270 voucher in the end I got $240
