 I tried to re-open bug 7098 but I didn't have the permission.

 To reproduce the error, put any video without meta-data into the myth-
 videos dir. Go to "Watch Videos" and hit "m" > "Scan for Changes" so it
 shows up in the list, and you can edit the meta-data. Then hit "i" >
 "Metadata Options" > "Edit Metadata" and change the title of the video to
 something the metadata grabber script will be able to retrieve data for.
 Then select "done". Browse back to the file, hit "i" > "Metadata Options"
 again, this time select "Download Metadata". Then "m" and "Scan for
 Changes". This is when mythfrontend crashes.

 I noticed 2 things with this crash. 1: It occurred the first time after I
 had populated metadata using the mythweb plugin. (I had edited metadata
 using the web interface, not the mythfrontend interface). 2: it seems to
 happen if the title of the show needs to be changed. If the title does not
 need to be changed, but only subtitle or season/episode is changed, or
 only the images are downloaded, then "Scan for Changes" doesn't cause a

 Please email me if you need any further information. This is my  first
 time capturing a gdb.txt and submitting a bug; I'm sure I made mistakes.
 I'm classifying the Priority as "major" because of the constant need to
 restart mythfrontend when editing metadata, but I won't object if you say
 "but you can just scan for changes after you've made a lot" and change the
 priority back to minor. Thanks for the great work!
