Ah, HAH!  A little detective work showed that the problem with the shows
not being there after supposedly being recorded indicated that the
issues were only with ABC hi-def broadcasts off the cable box's firewire
port; the analog recordings were just fine.  A reboot of the cable box
fixed *that* problem.  Next time I get a chance I'll put that database
scrubbing script in as a cron job and see if the box doesn't start
retaining the schedules again.  Thanks all!
