Changing except NoneType to except Exception moves the error to here:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/find_orphans.py", line 230, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/bin/find_orphans.py", line 214, in main
  File "/usr/local/bin/find_orphans.py", line 136, in delete_recs
    name = u'{0.hostname}: {0.title}'.format(self)
NameError: global name 'self' is not defined

Which appears to be more squarely in the exception handling code you
recently added.
