If a program was checking "free space" then it would think there was
room left even though it was not available.  If a program was checking
"available space" then it would realize that the space remaining on the
drive is not useable.

In any case, this is (as suspected) a red herring.  I had a look at
autoexpire.cpp and it is using f_bavail so as long as the math is
correct and there are no logic bombs, MythTV *should* be immune to
complications caused by reserved space.
