I think however, that that behavior was usually unnoticeable, as the
deletes seem to occur pretty quickly.  With the bug resolved in
changeset 23604 deleted recordings would appear in the UI until all
prior slow truncates had finished because the unlink was getting
blocked (if I understand it correctly).  I think that's the only
reason I noticed it at all.  If I deleted several things they might
stay in the list for an hour or more.

Now that I've applied that fix, I can't see this behavior at all.  I'm
guessing I'd have to exit and re-enter the list of records within
seconds after deleting something.
