Personally, I prefer it this way. I find that having it fade out 
results in too much screen clutter if you have browse mode for 
up/down arrows turned on. With fade working the way it used to, you 
could select a channel, wait for it to be tuned, and then if you 
right away pressed up or down again, the new OSD would appear on top 
of the old one, making an unreadable mess.

This still happens somewhat, with the "broken" code, but it's nowhere 
near as annoying.
