You're mistaken.  Myth doesn't think the program was recorded earlier.
What it incorrectly thinks is that it already has a good copy of the
recording.  That's why the status of the upcoming rebroadcast was 'R'
instead of 'P'.  There's an arcane setting in the recording rules that
tells Myth to look for duplicates in the list of current recordings,
the list of previous recordings or both.  The default is to check in
both.  In your case, the previous recordings check is failing as it
should.  The current recordings check, however, is passing because of
the failed recording and it shouldn't do that.
