The recording-rule-specified start-early and end-late settings are hard 
requirements imposed upon the scheduler.  The global pre-/post-roll 
settings are soft padding (primarily meant for giving your hard 
drive/capture cards time to spin up or for your STB's OSD to disappear 
before the recording) that's ignored for back-to-back recordings.

Sounds like you and Steve both used the wrong settings.  Whereas he 
wanted the hard requirements of start early and end late, you wanted the 
soft requirements of pre-/post-roll.
