You're user job should be deleting the recording when it's done via a
backend command or via the bindings (python, perl, or php).

The recording schedule is stored in memory in the backend process and
so until the scheduler re-runs, it won't know things have changed,
hence why you should be using the backend protocol or bindings to tell
it what's going down.
