Yeah.  I was debugging it myself, since this is about the 4th time I've 
seen it mentioned.  I came to the same conclusion and was just writing 
up a response when I saw your message.

It seems it was broken by a typo in [8989].  The attached patch fixes it 
for non-DVB cards, but I don't know if it's the correct fix.  It may 
break DVB cards, so I would appreciate any feedback from DVB users.
