Find rules have an additional check.  If a matching entry exists in
the oldfind table, the program is considered a duplicate regarless of
the duplicate setting in recorded and oldrecorded.  oldfind is an
imperfect optimization to avoid greatly increasing the time needed for
the big scheduler query.

I'll defer to Chris Pinkham on this.

In the housekeeping that is typically done daily.
