Comment (by mrawji):

 Hi John,

 Funny to see this. After almost a year, I looked at the ticket this week.
 I haven't gone a whole lot deeper.

 I found a case where the queries got out of sync if the request timedout
 in MythTv, but the actual call continued in my external recorder.

 I fixed it by having the request handler in a threadpool and keeping track
 of the current request. This seems to work, but it doesn't happen often so
 time will tell.

 I am pretty sure we can close this. If I find something useful, i'll
 reopen and post a patch as well.

 Can you share the link the new API? I am happy to give it a go!
