Right, but the '"Premieres" recording rule example' does work, now.  If 
the OP was trying to say:  "Anyone who is using a recording rule based 
off the 'First Episodes' power rule custom example--or any other power 
rule that uses any time-based field--should delete and re-create or at 
least modify their existing rules when upgrading to 0.26," I would have 
agreed.  But based on the wording, I thought he was saying that there 
was a bug, so I just mentioned it was fixed.
