Thank you, Mike!  I can't tell you how valuable it is to know about
the recent commits.  Even though I spent much of this tedious morning
looking through the Dev and Commits archives, I really had no idea
what I was doing or what to look for.  "Missed recordings" and "zero
recording" were the search arguments, but nothing turned up that could
be called a fix for 0-length recordings.

By the term "SVN", I mean the steps listed in section "5.4 Manually
building MythTV" of the MythTV Documentation.  It looks like the
"trunk" is where I get the latest source.

Thanks again for the information about the commits.  I'll read the
entries in the archive, then decide what my next step(s) should be.
