Right.  We still need to update the theme.

You were likely using trunk before the release-0-22-fixes branch was 
made and then used svn switch to change your working copy of the 
repository to the release-0-22-fixes branch (and, if so, I /very/ much 
appreciate your doing so rather than wasting the bandwidth to do a full 
svn co again when you already basically had what you wanted).

When doing an svn switch in Myth, you really need to do a few things 
(assuming you checked out trunk--versus checking out trunk/mythtv, 
trunk/mythplugins, etc. separately):

1) do a "make distclean" in each application directory (mythtv, 
mythplugins, and all the themes dirs)
2) then cd to the trunk directory
3) run the commands:

svn switch http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/branches/release-0-22-fixes/ &&
rm mythtv/version.pro &&
find . -name 'Makefile' -delete && svn revert -R .

If you checked out individual dirs (trunk/mythtv, trunk/mythplugins, 
etc., instead), do the svn switch in each, and rm version.pro only in 
mythtv, and do the find and svn revert in each.

So, basically, the reason your --version would say trunk is because you 
didn't rm mythtv/version.pro && svn revert mythtv/version.pro .  
Therefore, you're running with a "modified" version.pro that changes the 
--version string (even though you never edited it :).
