It's against svn as of this morning, version 8641.  I initially was
trying out version 8501 (I think) and did an update this morning to
see if it had been fixed yet.

I don't see any problem with making it 8 chars wide, at least in the
database.  Do you (anyone?) happen to know if the c++ code assummes
it's any particular length?  It's working OK for me, and I didn't see
anything inside the libmythtv directory that uses it as a fixed length
string, but I'm not all that familliar with the code at this point.

I'll go ahead and open a ticket for it.
