I think a commit that happened a few hours before you sent this message 
changed it so that case is ignored when doing program title 
comparisons.  ( http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/8464 )

It does.  It ignores "The", "A", and "An" (or their translations, as 
appropriate).  (Don't know fore sure when this went in--so it might not 
be in 0.18--but it's definitely been in SVN for a _long_ time.)
