This used to happen for a while because MythWeb was updated to support 
changes to certain recording types quite some time after the recording 
types were changed in MythTV.  Therefore, this has been fixed in SVN and 
you shouldn't see the problem anymore with 0.19.  The rules will be 
deleted automatically for you.

(You didn't say which version of Myth you're using, but I would guess 
post-0.18, but not current SVN...)
