I have seen this, and it appears that the backend doesn't send the 
updated schedule to mythweb immediately. If you refresh the 'Upcoming 
Recordings' page after clicking 'Don't Record', it should show the 
corrected schedule. It does this for me with SVN build 18703.

I have not debugged it, since it works well enough for me.
