If you configure things so that new rules have a small negative hard 
lead in and lead out times AND larger positive soft lead in and lead 
out times this problem can be reduced.  

Also, I have seen some odd scheduling problems that have been resolved by 
clicking on a desired program and selecting record this timeslot - only to 
have MythTV think about it for a while and then de-select a program that 
obviously was possible.  Maybe the EPG changed while I wasn't looking.  :-(
