Actually, it seems to be by design (it's a features, not a bug).  See 
the following threads (starting with the linked posts, especially):

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/156126#156126 (and 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/156150#156150 )


These threads--in addition to explaining why it was designed as
