 When a 'Record only this showing' schedule is created, it should be
 treated as a special case in that, because the 'final' schedule is known
 at the time it is created (ie there is no future matching between schedule
 and program data, it is a non-recurring rule), any program data relevant
 to the schedule should be cached at the time of schedule creation, and the
 schedule made **immune** from later changes to program data (especially
 small changes to starttime and fields normally used for matching).  It
 should be treated very similarly to a manual schedule in terms of conflict
 checking/resolution. It may be appropriate to allow the user to take
 advantage of the current program data iff an edit of the schedule rule is
 being undertaken.

 The current behaviour would see this type of schedule ignored where there
 is **any** discrepancy between the starttime in the schedule versus the
 current starttime in program data. The discrepancy in question may be as
 little as one minute.  The problem appears on systems that take advantage
 of multiple guide grabbers or program data sources.
