As Robert Kulagowski confirmed last night, its fixed.

These queries don't come from mythfilldatabase.  They're from a pre-August 
29th version of the guidegrid -- that's only place such a query would loop 
like that.  The mythfilldatabase looping issue would produce quries like:

  SELECT channum FROM channel where chanid = x;

But that doesn't really matter, as it's been fixed.
