I'm not sure about your question.  I trashed all my recordings when I
used this script.  Granted I really didn't know what I was doing.  And
I had moved the default recording location on my Mythbuntu setup.

Currently I just use symlinks for storage in other then default places.

I see these messages every once and a while.  I delete them using
Mythweb.  A good indication of the problematic recordings is no
preview image in Mythweb.

It would be nice to know if the orphan script is valid for .22 because
I think it's a useful script.
