[mythtv-users] External channel change bug on 0.16

I use a serial devie to change channels (red eye) on a cable box. It
all worked fine on 0.14 on Mandrake 9.2.
I have now upgraded to Mandrake 10.1 and I've pretty much got
everything running again with Mythtv 0.16 except the external channel
change command. If I type it into the console with a channel number
(ie: /usr/bin/red_eye 120) it works fine, but even though its
configured in the setup it doesn't do anything. I can see the "usage:
device_com_port sendstring" in the logs so I know its being triggered.
I have also tried putting the command into a shell script and calling
echo "Changing to channel $1"
but nothing happens there either (the script works if I access it from
the command line) plus I don't see the "Changing to channel X" being
produced either in the logs or the console.
I can only assume this is a bug unless anyone can tell me otherwise.
