Ive noticed this too. only 1 instance so far.
I did some examining of the database and the title replacement wasnt in the 
programs table.
so what was presented was
title : old
subtit : new
desc : new
duration : old
very strange. didnt get any further than that.

no instance of old program in program table or in the guide xml file which 
fill processed.
