This sounds like a broken DB. I've seen similar issues where the
VARCHAR(20) programid becomes a VARCHAR(6) (or, now, a VARCHAR(40)
programid would become a VARCHAR(13)) because someone/something (such as
an upgrade) messes with the encoding of the DB. Once this happens, the
truncated value makes everything look like a dup.
Since deleting and recreating the rule is easy, it wouldn't hurt to try
that. But, if you can check out your oldrecorded/recorded/program
tables to verify the programid columns (and values), you might be able
to figure out exactly what's wrong.
