If I said "where's your patch", I'd be wasting time for both of us. :)
A patch just went into CVS to implement this functionality.  There
is now a setting which tells Myth to forget it ever recorded a
show if it has to autoexire that show for low disk space reasons.
Default is OFF I believe, but this is the thing you'd turn on if
you were running CVS.
