If you run with "-v all", then you would have seen a bunch of messages
from the AutoExpire code when it expired the recording.  These are displayed
whenever you use "-v file" so they should have been printed if the
expirer deleted your file.

I don't think that's related, no limit means keep as many as it can,
and the expirer would have printed messages when it deleted the file if
you ran with "-v all".

If you want, you can cut the portion from 20 minutes or so prior to the
delete until just after the delete and gzip and mail to me privately
and I'll take a look to see if I notice anything.
