Comment (by Steve <stevenable@…>):

 Thank you for your explanation.  Since most users wouldn't normally see
 the logs I'm not sure I agree with you but okay.  Yet then what is the
 correct procedure to identify and remove these?

 I can find the offending recordings in the "auto expire list" and they are
 marked as 'deleted' but I find no way to remove them from this list.
 Requesting 'delete now' does nothing (other than generate error in the log
 that I don't see from the frontend [e.g. no error message given to user]).
 I can find the recordings in the "previously recorded" but find nothing
 identifying these as different from other recordings although I can
 request to delete the episode - and doing so removes it from this
 'previously recorded' list but not the 'auto expire list'.

 It does appear the 'Find_orphans' script would work but I was expected
 something in Myth itself.  Since the auto-expire list shows they are
 deleted, why would you not allow me to remove it from there as one of the
 menu items?  Or is this done somewhere else I've missed?
