Well, if no one else is getting the same problem, I'll presume its
something I've done silly. I did do a make clean (but not a distclean)
and go through setup, to no avail, so I'll remove everything and start
from scratch, and give Adam's new tv_grab_uk a go. I'm not sure what
other info I could have provided, I don't get a crash or anything, so
can't get a backtrace or anything. Failing that, I'll try an earlier cvs
checkout if I can figure it out.
