There are 2 settings in the duplicate matching option, one is episode &
description, the other is episode then description. If the program doesn't
have an episode title, make sure you use the latter of the 2 options (i.e
episode THEN description), otherwise all episodes match.

I'm not sure if this is a bug. My view is that if there is no episode
title, then both options should match duplicates based on the description
only, but I didn't write the code :-)
