yes, but the 'done' approach is currently different: epgsearch marks and
saves a broadcast as done only if it has been successfully and
completely recorded. So any recording break because of timer conflicts
or a crash will be noticed and epgsearch will automatically search for a
repeat of the broadcast (provided that proper settings for the search
timer exist).

The drawback of this approach is that deleting a timer will lead to the
described situation, because it it not yet 'done' in terms of epgsearch.
Currently one has to disable the timer to prevent the recording and I
would like to solve this in the next release. This could be easily done
if VDR could notify plugins about timer deletions.
