No it should not say [no change] ever except as a choice in the list.  
I'll take a look at it.

Record as show should create the recording entry..

That's because it, like some others is not a list.  It's a numeric value 
which can only be incremented and decremented.  The numerics are 
intelligent enough to not say "Keep at most 0 episodes".

I'll take a look.
