There was a ticket submitted at http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3823 ,
but it was closed as worksforme by Chris Pinkham.  I mentioned to him
that I had seen the issue, too, and that I would look into the cause of
it.  The issue seems to be hard to reproduce (potentially a race
condition) because it only happens for me on some recordings and with
seemingly no pattern (i.e. regardless of channel, content type, or
recording rule).

Don't worry about opening the ticket--until we identify the bug (rather
than the symptom), the ticket isn't helpful.  It's on my TODO list,
which is what I use rather than Trac to track my in-progress projects. 
I'll admit it's not the top of my list (I have a couple of new things
I'm trying to get done for possible inclusion in 0.21), but even if it's
fixed post-0.21, the fix will be backported (unlike new features ;).

However, if you have any additional information that could be useful in
determining the cause/source of the problem, this would be a perfect
place for that discussion to take place.
