This is how I would interpret the outcome too - otherwise it likely
would have recorded P1 on input 1, and P2 and P3 on input 2 without
the 10 minute overrecord.
Is the scheduling logic available online in metalanguage anywhere, or
is it a case of going through the code to work out what was going on?
I think it would be useful if users understood the possible scenarios
that can occur with simultaneous and back-to-back recordings and the
effects of padding.
