Mythfilldatabase does clear out old program information. At least, it does for
me. There's a step where it's supposed to delete old program information...
either before "today" or before "yesterday," I forget which.

Perhaps that step is failing for you, for some reason? For me,

mysql> select min(starttime), max(starttime) from program;
| min(starttime) | max(starttime) |
| 20040306000600 | 20040315235900 |
1 row in set (0.04 sec)

My database dates back to August last year, so I know that old program
information is being removed.
