[mythtv-users] AutoExpire clarification

Just wondering if someone can clarify the operation of AutoExpire.

Does it
a) Expire recordings when it needs space to satisfy a recording.
b) Expires recordings whenever it wants, whether it needs the space or not.

I ask because I recorded a program last night. During the timeframe, I 
checked it was recording and everything was fine. Just after it finished 
I checked again and it was in the Watch Recordings list. However, when 
we went to actually watch it later, it was gone. It shows in the 
Previously Recorded list but not in Watch recordings. There was 
sufficient space left to satisfy the minimum requirement. There is no 
file on the HDD.
