Ah, sorry, my mistake. Hadn't checked if it had actually been uploaded 
already, I'm actually running my own build right now (sans opengl).

In retrospect, perhaps Myth rpm builds with new features ought to sit in 
testing for a bit before moving to stable so we don't run into things like

And with a few rare exceptions, most folks on the atrpms lists use the stock 
atrpms builds, which until just recently, hadn't ever included opengl sync 
for any of them to report on.

But yes, there were negative reports to be scanned on the mythtv lists, which 
it seems were overlooked. I know that I, for one, am on too many high-volume 
lists to pay attention to every message and missed most of these reports, but 
point taken, do a bit of research before enabling features and test them out 
before putting them in the stable repo.
