so now there is at least acknowledgement this is actual an issue?

well, let's call that progress.

they are not missing in my 0.18-build. i would be happy to supply you
with a couple of hundred patches against 0.18-fixes.

and you know as well as i do that these "issues" are scattered
throughout the codebase.

i has been made clear to me that for the "developers" making mythtv
multi-db-compatible is out of the question.

then why on earth would i contribute such patches? please answer that.
