[mythtv-users] recording starts but never stops on HD5500 capture card

I've been running my Myth box for months with no major problems. But
every once in a while, mythbackend would have terminated with no log
indicating what happened.
I finally decided to try to debug this as follows:
- rebuilt myth with --enable-debug
- set up mythbackend to run from within gdb
- ran with --verbose all
Now I have a major problem that seems to reproduce every time. When a
scheduled recording begins on my first capture card (HD5500), it never
stops recording. Luckily I detected this before it caused all my
auto-expire recordings to be deleted.
I also noticed that two recordings started late. One started 7 minutes
late, and the other started 15 minutes late. In each case, it seems
like the late recording started as a result of the scheduler being
kicked. In one case, I had just deleted a recording. In the other case
I had deleted an inactive recording rule. However, this second problem
does not happen every time.
I did recently upgrade to 0.20.2 14498. But I ran this with no problems
for a few days before trying to run in debug mode, after which both
I haven't seen any bugs reported, so I think I must be the only one
having these problems.
I think I should mention that I recently deleted some rows from table
oldrecorded. I did this because I wanted these particular episodes to
record again. I don't suppose this could explain the issues I report
above, but I'm mentioning it for completeness.
Any ideas about what's causing this? I really have to get this one
figured out quickly since I risk losing all my recordings.
