No. This was after new thumbnails had been created using the new
recorded.basename value after I had manually deleted the old
thumbnails which had not been renamed. I refreshed the recorded
programs page in MythWeb and the new files were created. I then
deleted the files via MythWeb, and the thumbnails were left behind. I
shall try and test this more with your new patch in place to avoid
having to have the thumbnails regenerated.
