 I upgraded to the latest SVN.  Since that point, I've not been able to
 skip forwards in many of my recorded shows.  I have some diagnostics on
 what is going on, and am quite happy to get more if someone can tell me
 what sort of information might be useful.

 The interesting behaviour here is that I can skip backwards and forwards
 happily whilst a show is still recording.  Pretty much as soon as it
 finishes recording I lose the ability to skip.  It instead shows the
 position it is skipping to as being the end of the program, but actually
 either stays where it is, or goes back to the start.  It takes a while to
 do this, so it appears as if it is scanning the whole stream for
 something, not finding it, then taking me back to the start.

 I suspected commercial flagging or transcoding, so I turned both of those
 off.  I still get the same behaviour.  Interestingly, it seems to apply to
 both shows I've recorded recently (since upgrading), and shows from the
 past - so it seems not to be something that the latest version is doing,
 rather something with the file or data that is stored when recording

 I tried downgrading back to a version similar to the one I had - somewhere
 in Sept.  I still get the same behaviour, which doesn't make a lot of
 sense.  I also upgraded my debian install at the same time - it could
 plausibly be some other software that myth is dependent on that is causing
 the problem.  However, after looking through the dependencies for myth I
 couldn't see anything that would be likely to cause this behaviour.
