Replying to myself.. I noticed that mythweb failed to do the "Forget 
old" action for this particular "previously recorded" Frasier episode. 
That's probably because there really isn't the old one in the 
oldrecorded table, although the scheduler/duplicate detection thinks so.

Well, this possible bug occurs quite infrequently so I'll have to wait 
maybe couple of weeks / months now.. but I'll try to do some real 
debugging if/when this reappears.
