 Thank you for the patch.  We sincerely appreciate the effort that went
 into your patch.  Unfortunately, the script is deprecated and will no
 longer be maintained.

 The functionality provided by myth.rebuilddatabase.pl will be incorporated
 into mythbackend (with interfaces in mythfrontend and MythWeb) to ensure
 it's kept up to date with future changes and to make accessing the
 functionality easier for users.  The existing script has a lot of
 problems, in addition to the one mentioned here, because it hasn't been
 maintained across various changes to core MythTV, and its use is not
 recommended.  Therefore, the script was removed from contrib.
