[mythtv] 3rd time asking - please help: Automatic conflict resolution

Can someone explain to me how the automatic conflict resolution stuff 

Previously, the "fix scheduling conflicts" screen highlighted any 
conflicting programs which had equal priorities and let me choose which to 
record.  But in recent versions of Myth this seems to have disappeared and 
instead it flags conflicting programs with an "A" and says "This showing 
will not be recorded because another program was automatically chosen to 
be recorded instead".

1. How does it know what to record if all the conflicting programs are of 
equal priority?
2. How do I stop it doing this since most of the time it seems to get it 
wrong (and a little "A" flag doesn't let me spot the conflicts as easilly 
as the whole line being highlighted as used to happen)?

Or is there something completely broken on my system thats preventing the 
usual manual conflict resolution working? (and if so, what's it likely to 
be and how do I fix it?)
