[mythtv-users] Deleting Recordings

I'm running 0.27.6 and have a question about how MythTV deletes recordings.

I configured MythTV to not delete recordings for 1 day after I select 
delete.  As I understand this functionality, MythTV moves the deleted 
recording into the Deleted Recordings group for the specified time (1 
day = 24 hours), and then schedules it for actual deletion.  My question 
is, does MythTV take into account other activities when the 'time to 
delete' arrives, such as other recordings taking place, before 
performing the delete?  I would like MythTV to not start a deletion when 
it is otherwise busy recording. I do not want recordings to be affected 
due to I/O or CPU constraints that might arise while recording multiple 
programs.  I also have the slow delete feature enabled.
