[mythtv] record/playback bug

I tried playing a show recorded earlier and it does the same thing with the
time. The OSD displays the wrong time, way behind the actual time in the
show. Then weird things happen like if i fast forward it actually goes
back-wards in the file (presumably to where it thinks it is and the OSD
reports it is). Rewinding just doesn't work at all. My problems are
probably in part the same as the no-rewind bug previously mentioned.

Since there is no bug-tracking system per-say, what is the proper way to
report bugs? Should this be on myth-user? Should i not bother posting
without a patch attached and just wait it to get fixed in cvs? Should
mythtv-cvs  be consisted developer only and if you can't patch it yourself wait 
for a stable version?
