Not to nitpick, but you have made an assumption that is not correct. I 
am the one that opened the ticket. I am the one that posted the patch. I 
am not the one that bumped the ticket. Therefore telling the person that 
bumped the ticket to apply his patch rather than bumping his ticket is 

If fact, I do build from source (I maintain MiniMyth) and I include my 
patch. I opened the ticket and included my patch because there where 
other users posting on myth-users that they were having the same 
problem. Since they use other distributions (in this case ATrpms), my 
patched version of MiniMyth was not a solution for them.

I guess this is what I get for trying to be helpful. I won't make that 
mistake again.
