I have tested my patch on a fresh cvs version.
I don't have the bug you talk about.

but frontend crash if i go in videobrowser -> filter display
then i press "Done" or "save as default" button and frontend crash
I fix it and then resubmit patch.

About warning, for one of them i made a stupid test on a parameter to 
remove the warning (if (modetree != modetree) return "";)
For the two others, i made something now with parameter then they should 
be removed.

Finally, in videogallery, when you choose to group by storage, the query 
  return no results. i fix it.
