When I added the Browse mode functionality, I didn't code in the ability to
browse while using PIP, so these are really one big bug I think. :)  I just
committed a patch to CVS that hopefully will fix this and let you switch
back and forth between the PIP windows while still using browse mode.  I
can't test fully right now because my dev machine doesn't have 2 tuners and
I can't update my production system to CVS right now so they can't talk to
each other for me to test PIP in browse mode.  At the very least though my
change shouldn't break anything.  Can you give current CVS a shot and see
if that fixes the problems you were seeing?
