Partial recordings should probably be flagged in some way, but I have
other things to work on first.  So, I'm going to fix the bug this

Same here.  I've been meaning to look for myself (or be lazy and just
ask Chris) what, if anything, is done when a recording is
auto-expired.  Without having looked at any of the code, I think the
straight forward thing to do would be to not add an entry to
oldrecorded until the user explicitly deletes the recording.
