I'm still seeing this problem in current CVS, which is making it harder for 
me to debug other issues I'm seeing there (namely, I can no longer skip 
forward or get length info in SD shows that have been transcoded recently).

An option to turn off the automatic updating of channels would work for me 
until we can work out keeping the xmltvid in sync with the channels.
