Deleted programs expired early and set to rerecord when "number of episodes" is set

I think I've found a bug in the interaction between a recording rule with max number of episodes and the deleted group.

I've got a rule (Dora the Explorer) set up with max number of episodes set to 3. I have the Deleted group set up to keep deleted programs for up to 7 days. When the scheduler decides to record a new episode of Dora, it immediately auto-expires an episode from the Deleted group, even though it hasn't been around for 7 days yet, and there are less than 3 non-deleted episodes. The expired episode gets marked for re-recording (duplicate=0) even though is was already deleted.

I think the main bug is that the max number of episodes code needs to be modified to not count episodes in the deleted group. Alternatively, it should not reset the duplicate flag when it expires an episode from the deleted group.

It also uses an unusual message when doing so; normally, when a Deleted item expires, either due to the 7 day delay or because my drive is full, the log says:

logid: 8440

but when it logs in this instance, it says:

Dora the Explorer. Too many episodes, we only want to keep 3.

(In [21394]) Make the AutoExpirer? use the same maxepisodes logic that the scheduler uses with regard to recordings in the 'Deleted' recording group. These should not be counted against the scheduled recording's maxepisodes count since they have been Deleted.

Closes #5337. The other issues mentioned in the ticket as possibilities do not appear to be the case. The log pasted in the ticket shows the recording was deleted due to maxepisodes and that is why the erroneous message about "too many episodes" was listed.
