Comment (by Roger Siddons <dizygotheca@…>):

 These issues arise from a combination of bugs in the recorder & scheduler.
 It manifests differently depending on UI use, use of active EIT, type of
 recording rule and presence of repeats.

 The following annotated log shows one method of producing a 'phantom
 recording' that isn't writing to disk and cannot be stopped.

 Note that deleting the recording does not seem to be relevant; it's the
 stopping of it that's at fault.

 Deleting the recording rule has no effect on current recordings,
 presumably by design.

 I've identified 4 separate issues that cause this type of behaviour.
 Running all of the following 4 patches I see consistent/correct behaviour
 on a single backend with dual DVB-T tuner. Failures were simulated by
 removing the aerial.

 I haven't tested slave backend/remote tuners, nor 0.27. Some patches
 should be backportable but 0.28 has a lot of changes in this area and I
 don't have a 0.27 build available.
