I'm not interpreting it as an argument--it was the exact information I 
was requesting.  :)

I just wanted to know for sure that everyone was on the same page before 
I said the behavior is expected.  Since both you and David have given 
the same interpretation of the report, I'll assume that we are (and 
Peter can let me know later if he had something else in mind).

Anyway, that means you are right on all counts--it's the currently 
expected behavior, and it is something I'm planning to fix.  
Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that need changing to fix it 
properly, so it won't be a quick (and not necessarily a near-term) fix.

So, thanks for getting the discussion started on the ticket--I had the 
ticket marked as a Later, but I'm glad to have it handled.  :)

And thanks to David for explaining the specifics of the problem Peter is 
seeing in http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/434205#434205 .
