[mythtv-users] Deleted Recordings Not Being Removed

I am using MythTV 0.28.  I have long ago set up a Deleted Recordings 
Group and configured mythtv to remove recordings from there after 24 
hours.  This gives me an easy 1 day undo option.  This has worked fine 
for years.

Looking at the backend status from mythweb, I see almost 600 GB of space 
used by deleted recordings.  That seems like a lot to me, since they 
should be removed within 24 hours of me deleting the recording.

Using the Recorded Programs from mythweb and selecting the Deleted group 
shows 222 programs in that group.  This looks like something has gone 
wrong with mythtv removing deleted recordings.

Any ideas how to fix this?
