Orphaned preview images, again

It looks like there is a new source of orphaned preview images. I need to do some more testing, but the sequence seems to go like this -- begin watching a recording, then exit playback and immediately delete the recording.

I suspect the "automatic regeneration from bookmark" feature is part of the cause. The generation of a new image is started upon exiting playback, but doesn't complete until after the deletion process has started.

Note my main frontend does not normally have the recording directories mounted. I believe this forces preview generation to the backend and probably affects the timing of events.

I'm taking this one. I plan to fix it as part of the recordedfile changes scheduled for post 0.24. When fixed, we will actually store references to each generated preview in the database.

Fixed by f78f9992d75 - Even if the recording is deleted immediately after watching it's not actually removed until at least 5 minutes later, more than enough time for any preview generation to have completed.
