I've found find_orphans.py script to be less than reliable.   After
upgrading my mythtv box, an NFS permissions issue caused recordings to
fail to be successfully deleted.  This left a lot of orphans taking up
space on my NAS.

I had to run the script multiple times to get all of the stray files
cleaned up.
