I think it should be readily apparent to you that your incessant 
reopening of this ticket is futile.  It would be a major problem that 
pretty much everyone running SVN would see if Myth truly had issues 
recording back to back episodes of the same show.  As I noted on the 
developer list already, which I assume you are a member of if you are 
running SVN, that it would be helpful to know if you have per-show 
over/under recording options set because if you do, they are *hard* 
buffers and will bump other shows.  It would also be helpful for you to 
respond with the results of

mythbackend --printsched

which will show the scheduling on your system.  The fact is, no one can 
reproduce your "bug".  I have multiple episodes of MythBusters scheduled 
back to back this weekend as they run another marathon of episodes and I 
have no problems recording them.  Stop abuse the bug system and try to 
work out your misconfiguration on the developers list.
