The like needs a % to match anything that's not exactly equal though, so
if I put in "Jaws" then it won't match "Jaws 2", but "Jaws %" would
match "Jaws 2".

One of those things that I noticed a while back but wouldn't have a clue
if it were changed one day because I just hit Enter -> Down -> Enter
to watch a recording, Enter -> Right -> Enter -> Left to schedule a new
one, etc.. :)  That's using blue though.  Ought to checkout some of the
other themes one day.  No reason a theme has to say "Fix Conflicts".
