I *think* I've solved this bug with the attached patch.
The only problem is that MythTV doesn't install the
mythtv/jsmenuevent.h header by default, so anyone wanting
to give this patch a try will need to copy the header from
the source tar.gz to the proper place on their system before

I'll try to remember to submit a bug report on this in
the morning.
