The last builds I have of master before resync are  32Pre509 from 3 
July.  There was no hint of this then, or with resyncs before the batch 
on 23 July.  I don't expect difficulty in building current master for 
F35, but I haven't done it yet.

Attached is gdb output for mythcommflag --rebuild on a BBC ONE DVB-T raw
