While the display of this conflict in mythweb may be an issue, you 
should never assume a plugin to give you the correct scheduling 
information.  Mythfrontend is the offical place to examine your schedule 
and resolve conflicts.  And the system is performing exactly as intended.

If you want your over/under record to be optional, use global options, 
not per-show options.  The per-show options are hard and will bump shows 
as expected.
