[mythtv-users] Why doesn't 'delete recording' actually mean 'delete recording'?

Long story short, I logged into mythweb yesterday and saw that I only
had 25GB free on my recording partition (1.5TB). So I deleted a bunch
of recordings to make room (I had no idea which of my terabyte+
recordings myth would start auto expiring). Later lest night I
checked and saw that the amount of free space had not increased at
all. It seems that telling myth to delete a recording doesn't
actually delete it. It just gets placed into a queue to be deleted
when myth needs space. This allows the user to later "undelete"
I don't want to debate the usefulness of this "feature". Personally I
find it to be annoying and counter intuitive. But I understand many
people could prefer it this way. Is there a way to disable the fake
delete feature? Or is there a easy way to figure out how much space
my "deleted but not yet really deleted" recordings take up?
