[mythtv-users] MythTV recording extra time *randomly*

I'm having a bit of a strange occurance with mythtv, and was wondering if
anyone had seen this before.
Occasionally MythTV will decide to add extra time onto my recordings,
seemingly at random.
For example, I recorded My Name is Earl (I know, I know... the wife likes
it) last week. It was scheduled to be on from 7:00 - 7:30 PM CST. The
guide showed it at 7:00 - 7:30 PM, and the info that myth tv shows when you
select the recording said 7:00 - 7:30 PM as well. But for some unknown
reason, MythTV *actually* recorded from 6:59 - 7:56 PM! (Yes, twenty-six
minutes after the end time, and captured twenty minutes of the drek that
I have a soft start early at one minute, and soft end late at one minute.
The recording rule has no hard start/end early. There weren't any conflicts
(heck I had a tuner idle during that time even).
Anyone have any ideas? I don't even know where to begin trying to sort this
problem out, so any and all suggestions are welcome!
(I've also seen mythTV record *less* than the show length, but never seems
to miss any of the actual *show*. I've been a bit perplexed as to how
that's possible too, but it wasn't so bad so I ignored it. But 26 minutes
over is a bit excessive!)
