A tape volume becomes recyclable ONLY when all the savesets on that volume
AND all of its dependencies become recyclable. The volume you asked about
probably has one or more savesets on it that have not been marked
recyclable yet due to one or more of those saveset's dependencies (a level
backup or incremental) not being marked as recyclable yet.
