As I'm not a coder I can't be of much help with debugging the patch
per se, but I presume your MythTV video files are on a non-network

apparently the CIFS network mount renames the file if it's deleted
while it's kept open. I'm puzzled as to why, if the mount still
permits actions that take place with the previous name (because the
truncations work), the final close and delete when the stub is below
the truncation threshold doesn't work.

How does your patch perform the truncation?  Would it be possible to,
for example, a) delete the database info (so the program doesn't show
up in MythTV any more), b) truncate the file without renaming or
deleting it in any way, then c) passing it off to the normal delete
