#9360: Delete - "Yes, and allow re-record" doesn't reschedule episodes

 I'm no longer able to reschedule episodes of shows by using the "delete -
 yes, and allow re-record" option on a recording from the watch recordings
 screen.  I believe, but can not confirm that this has happened sometime
 after the 0.22 release. I first noticed this behavior sometime during my
 usage of 0.23, after I finally looked at why episodes weren't eventually
 re-recording.  I was waiting until after 0.24's release to see if the
 behavior resolved itself, but after testing, it appears to still be
 present.  I can replicate it on any recording rule, new or old, where
 episodes are recorded, deleted and allowed to re-record, and then later

 Step to replicate:

 1) Create a recording rule, an "any channel" rule for example, for a
 series that usually re-airs episodes (Discovery Channel/TLC/History
 typically air the same episodes multiple times a day/week).

 2) Allow a non-generic episode to record that has a later airing.

 3) Delete the recording through the watch recordings screen by going to
 Menu, Delete, select "Yes, and allow re-record".

 4) Wait for the scheduler to run (or run mythbackend --resched)

 5) Check the "Upcoming Episodes" screen for the recording rule and look
 for any airings of the same episode that was marked for delete and re-
 record.  They will continue to be marked as "Record All - Previously
 Recorded" and will not be scheduled to record.

 The only way to re-record (via the frontend UI) is to go into the
 recording history and forget the recording.

 I have also tested this against the "Delete + rerecord" button in mythweb
 and it *does not* exhibit the same behavior - it actually works as
 expected.  "Delete + rerecord" in mythweb, will both delete the recording
 and reschedule the episode to be re-recorded.

 I typically would provide logs in the initial report, but I'm not sure
 which verbose options might be of use without further guidance.  Please
 let me know and I'd be happy to report back with any details necessarily
 to help with the report.

 Thank you in advance!
