Ok, this _should_ now be fixed in CVS as well.  The problem was that when the 
scheduler was asked to generate a list of programs to be recorded, it'd cull 
out anything that was to begin at or before the current system time.  So when 
it was asked at midnight (most likely about a second past midnight) to 
regenerate its to-be-recorded list, it would remove the scheduled midnight 
recording as it was now starting in the past..  Same thing would happen if 
you managed to change the recording schedule at the exact same time a 
recording was supposed to begin.  

So, I just made the scheduler think it was a minute in the past before 
generating the list of programs to record..  Should work, though it's
