[mythtv] Re: seg fault with myfilldatabase

I'm getting the same results.  From what I can tell, xmltv (0.5.7) is
producing entries with no endtime (due to changes on zap2it site).
So, myfilldatabase doesn't know what the endtime is either.  I suppose
we could make myfilldatabase default the endtime to be midnight
instead of the empty string, but that is a hack.  It would be better
if xmltv gave us the endtime.

Perhaps, this needs to be pursued on the xmltv mailing list....
