All covered in the ticket description:


If it really bothers you (more than it did me), see the post I 
referenced in the description.  It describes a better approach for 
fixing the script (which entails rewriting it based off Chris Petersen's 
mythrename.pl script), but I don't use myth.rebuilddatabase enough to 
warrant the time required for a proper fix.
