Hmm, not sure what caused that problem. :( I do think there are other
bugs lurking around, so It could be unrelated to the patch. It would
be nice to address this one transition bug on its own.

What we really need to do is determine which patch is best
2335_fix_1.diff or 2335_fix_2.diff

2335_fix_1.diff - Applies the fix to livetv only

2335_fix_2.diff - Applies the fix to livetv and recordings/video's
that have a position map.

I guess if 2335_fix_2.diff doesn't provide a clear benefit for people,
2335_fix_1.diff would be the safer fix for now.
