So do you mean this is a know issue, being fixed in CVS?  Or just that maybe
someone's fixed it already.  It DOES seem aggrivating enough to prod someone
into action :)

Actually, this persists across several themes I've tried.  Blue (the default
one), Titivilius, and the new Myxer all had the same behavior.  Is there
something other than the theme that affects the program guide geometry?  Like
maybe the "qt-style", "menu-style", or perhaps font size?  I'm not real sure
what the first two do, really.  I don't THINK changing the font size did
anything, but I could play with it some more to be sure.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there...
