Comment (by stuartm):

 Nick, although as you rightly say the 25s timeout isn't related to the
 issue you are reporting, I'm still tempted to turn the tables and file
 that as a bug upstream. As I reported to the xmltv-dev mailing list at the
 time, that check used to take no more than a second, it's not the search
 which takes so long but the decision to restructure the scripts so that
 args like --capabilities are handled by the xmltv module. Instead of
 bailing out early, the entire script and module must be compiled to squirt
 out a few bytes of hardcoded text.

 I'd like to remain behind --capabilities and tv_find_grabbers, but 25s+ is
 a ridiculously long time to wait for anything to happen in a UI.
 Especially when that same info could be returned in a couple of hundred
