If you've been running 0.16 for a while now, you should have noticed 
that the new episodes are being scheduled appropriately.  Myth is 
regularly picking later showings of episodes that run at the same time 
as other shows I have it set to record.  Just a guess, but it seems that 
those recordings that were scheduled by 0.15 were not re-scheduled by 
0.16, so the conflicts in place from 0.15 were not fixed by an upgrade 
to 0.16.  However, 0.16 will fix "future" conflicts--those that occur in 
the new days whose schedule is downloaded by 0.16.
