Probably programid. It's possible you are getting invalid values from 
EIT or your DB schema is broken (i.e. wrong length for the programid 
field).  For example, see
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/180855#180855 (and the 
rest of the posts in the thread) .

Right.  I didn't understand the question.  The answer to the question 
should be, "No," then.  Myth doesn't support resizing by dragging like a 
desktop application.
