Ok, did as you said and this time it seems like everything is correct.  I
deleted the current rule and went to next Monday's airing and setup a 
'find one
weekly' rule.  This time it shows "Mon, 21:00 or later", which is 
correct.  The
find id also shows 7/18/2005.  I chose 'none' for the duplicate check method
and the scheduler chose to skip the Monday airing in favour of the Tuesday
airing (due to conflicts for next Monday) and it also skipped the Wednesday
airing, as expected.

It's probably worth noting that the only difference between the way I 
set it up
this time and last time is that this time I setup the schedule rule via
mythfrontend (the EPG), whereas the first time I did it via MythWeb.  Might
there be a bug with the way MythWeb schedules these types of recordings?
