Comment (by patrick.wirth@…):

 I got this when I manually moved some files from my 'recordings' to my
 'videos' folder and renamed them for long term storage (they were kids
 movies that I was tired of seeing in the daily lineup).

 I think I also got this if I rebooted the backend while something was
 recording (to unjam a card).    My quick fix was to touch the associated
 filenames in the 'recordings' folder as the mythtv user.  The touched
 files and extra png files would disappear or I guess they were expired...

 This avoids having to muck with sql in the database to nuke the bad
