Corrupting Pulse length?

Hey guys,

How long does corrupting pulse last?

http://crawl.chaosforge.org/Corrupter

I got into a big fight in Pan and gained a whole load of mutations, but from a corrupter. I'm sure I remember these wearing off fairly quickly in the past, but I've waited around 2000 turns and I still have all of them? I rejoined Zin to clear a permanent "Blurry vision" I got off a nexoquec - but a lot of the other mutations I'm expecting to wear off. I wanted to wait for that just in case there was some weird interaction with cleanse mutation potions. Any advice?
