Thanks for this list. There were a few that I had forgotten.

There was a similar bug in Mac OS for a while.
Not sure yet, but I think it was related to -r15623

Still a mystery to me, but I suspect the UPnP stuff.

Low priority. Note that MythArchive also uses python.

I'm working on this now.

Haven't investigated, but are you sure its removed?

Have not experienced this one, but it should
now be fixed by latest win32-packager.pl ?
> - Watch recordings: can't find file
Sounds like a backend misconfig error.
I just got a HDTV recording to start playing!
(and then the FE hanged when I tried to exit)
> - getloadaverage fails - machines status
Minor, but it only needs a Google to find a Win32 load
routine to add into programs/mythbackend/httpstatus.cpp
> - Window Caption not displayed correctly
> - Mythfrontend - halt now, reboot now.. - Defaults are incorrect
Don't really care, but easy to patch?
> - Running with OpenGL does not display pages correctly
How so? Just refresh issues like 5212?
> - Mythmovies - ignyte seg faults
I had to change the config path from ignyte to ignyte.exe,
but didn't get a crash, just an 100% CPU on ignyte.exe.
I assumed that was because I tested behind a proxy firewall.
> - weather does not find or run scripts - due to marking them as
I can't get this module to do anything
(always stuck at screen setep page)

Mac OS X (and some Linux distros) have the same problem.
I have tried a fake install those modules in the package,
but gave up.
> - mythflix - usleep doesn't exist, replace with Sleep
Haven't tried building that. Patch?
> - mythvideo - shows unknown prefix when first started in browse mode
I don't get that error. Was that because of no videos?
> - mythweather - update of weather happens on client side, thus

Moving it to the backend is a good idea
(and has been discussed before?) but is a lot of work.

Should be roughly fixed by latest win32-packager.pl
