The problem come from the livebuffer patch. It redefines cTimer::cTimer 
to add the length of the already buffered stream so when the instant 
recording start, it records the buffer too :
+  cTimer(bool Instant = false, bool Pause = false, cChannel *Channel = 
NULL, int Forerun = 0);
    cTimer(bool Instant = false, bool Pause = false, cChannel *Channel = 
+#endif /*USE_LIVEBUFFER*/

This feature can be removed easily (it's not really useful), I attach a 
modified version of the livebuffer patch.

Thanks Udo for pointing to the right direction.
