I think the problem might be that the scheduler assumes programs with
the same title and starttimes on the same channel (callsign) are the
same.  This is done in ProgramInfo::IsSameTimeslot().  If that's the
case, it's a configuration error because the channels shouldn't have
the same callsigns if they have different programming.  Now, if the
programming is normally almost the same (the final group stage games
being on at the same time is a bit of an anomoly), we might consider
adding a programid check in IsSameTimeslot().
