[mythtv] mythvideo (.20) crashes frontend with genre or country metadata.

I hope this is the right forum to report 

I just upgraded to .20 from .19.  When selecting any mythvideo module
(Watch Videos or VideoManager), mythfrontend traps when there is any data
in either the "videometadatagenre" or "videometadatacountry" table(s).  

I used the VideoManager to populate metadata from IMDB for some of my
movies, which inserted data into these two tables.  

In metadata.cpp, I commented out fillGenres() and fillCountries() in the
fromDBRow(MSqlQuery &query) method, and mythvideo no longer crashes.  I'm
not too hip on C++, so could not figure out what was causing the problem
in those methods.

Seems odd that nobody else is having this problem, so hopefully someone
can give me a clue. System is Fedora Core 5.

The stack will either show MetaDataImpl::fillCountries or ::fillGenres
