Another possibility is that you got refreshed listings data that had
the later showing, but only sometime in the day -after- the actual
showing, so Myth only knew about it too late.  I've had that happen
once or twice.

Debugging this sort of thing is why I keep the incoming scheduling
data essentially forever, outside of Myth's DB, so I can go back with
a text editor and see exactly what Myth knew and when it knew it.
