Hmmm... well, that sucks!  I'll have to scratch my head for a while about
that one... I wonder if the solution would be to add an 'oldrecordedignore'
table, and add entries in there to filter out entries in the oldrecorded
table?  Just thinking out loud...

BTW, did anyone on the IRC channel manage to come up with an explanation as
to why the 'force suppress' behavior seems to work, even though, as you
pointed out, the oldrecorded.starttime would be NULL?
