I don't know if this is the right way or not, but I had that happen once 
and I just went to the recordings directory, did a 'touch" command on 
the file in question, then I was able to delete it.  I deleted it via 
MythWeb, but I'm sure deleting it from the Recordings list in the front 
end would work too.

Hope that helps.
Harry
