For the intial scan, you should run it as user mythtv.
I never noticed the problem. I let mythtv autoexpire when it needs space. I have autoexpirefreespace in mythweb set to 20 (gigs of free space). When it sees less then 20 gigs, it expires recordings until it frees up enough space.
I know I said I would take care of the issues today, but it is my birthday and I am relaxing. I will hit them tomorrow.

SVN REV 483= if symlinking mode is Disabled, then set the group permissions chmod g=rw "$MoveDir/$ShowFileName.$originalext"

My only connect to my mythtv system is rsync downloads
Can I use it, I currently using Mythsexx, and mythlink?

MythSExx is the earlier version of mythicalLibrarian. You should be fine.
Let me know if there are any problems. Report them right away and I can make changes, then you can run mythicalLibrarian --update to apply the changes.

let me explain a bit more what I am looking at doing
I run mythtv on one network
I run xbmc on other network
the networks are connected for 1 to 2 hours every day via the internet
I am using SYMLINK=LINK
on the mythtv side:
the video are moved from 60GB hard drive to 1000 hard drive and are expired when there is a lack of free space
on the XBMC side:
a list of videos that have been watched and X number of days old are deleted (and noted in a exclustion file)
rsync is run with the exclustion file to download the videos from mythtv
the part that is missing is to remove old symbolic links when mythtv expires the videos

You will want to run mythicalLibrarian in MOVE mode. It places a symbolic link in place of the original and lets MythTV control the file by following the symlink to delete or serve the file. MOVE mode is the correct choice in 99.9% of the situations. MOVE mode lets mythtv control the files and XBMC control the content. Link was just added because someone requested it. Move is the all-around supported option.

I dont think move well work in my setup
I think I have found a program witch may be able to remove invalid symbloic links it is called symlinks
here is the man page http://linux.die.net/man/8/symlinks
- outleradam - 2010-08-01 14:42
SVN:496 = symbolic links generated in LINK mode are handled the same as any other file accessory like comskip info or NFO files. Symlinks are now logged in the ~/.mythicalLibrarian/created.tracking and checked for validity on each run of mythicalLibrarian. Invalid created.tracking files are deleted.
tom: please test it and make sure everything works well so it can be committed as stable.
