I don't think we can call it a bug, yet. Without knowing a lot more
information (including everything else in your program listings), we
really don't know what actually happened...

Post your patches on the Trac server. ;)

Without the whole schedule, it's impossible to explain why it's doing
what it's doing. mythbackend --printsched ?

Is that set to record 25 minutes past on the individual recording rule,
or are you talking about the global setting? (Sounds like the global,
but need to make sure.)
