Only if you're using MPEG-2 recordings.

No problem.  That's what allows you to seek instantaneously in MPEG-2 

If you want to reduce the table's size, you can:
    a) delete your MPEG-2 recordings.
    b) transcode your MPEG-2 recordings to MPEG-4 recordings.
    c) not worry about it and enjoy all the benefits the table provides.  :)
    d) upgrade to 0.20, where the seektable data in recordedmarkkup gets 
moved to recordedseek (so then you'll have a huge recordedseek table and 
a small recordedmarkup table).  ;)
