I'd still prefer the generic prefer-local-to-global patch to a
specific approach, but since that isn't in the cards at the moment
(Why was that reverted, anyway?), as Chris mentioned, the Jumppoints
for Program Guide and Program Finder should call the special
put-playback-on-pause-and-permit-return-to-playback versions of these
screens when in any playback mode, not just Live TV. I've been using
John Poet's patch
which does work this way, for so long that I didn't realize the
current approach didn't already act this way.

Other than that, though, I can't think of anything, in part because
the above are the only two such special versions of mythfrontend
screens that currently exist. (I'd love Upcoming Recordings and System
Status to also be able to act in this way, by the way.)

Once the jumppoint rewiring is done, shouldn't the "M" and "#" keys be
deleted? I can't think of any situation that one would, while watching
Live TV or a recording, want to be able to bring up both the
non-special and special versions of Program Guide or Program Finder,
so one Jumppoint key for each should suffice in all circumstances.
