It's not that kind of patch -- I just removed the "Delete" functionality
from mythvideo instead.  Couldn't understand the code enough to even begin
to find the bug.

The same bug is on the "System Status -> Auto Expire" screen.
If I tune to "Live TV" and channel flip a few times,
and then go to that screen and try deleting the top entry shown,
it actually deletes the wrong recording.
