As far as I can tell, they are sorted out.

Just upgraded to 0.20 from 0.19 this evening.  Stopped backend, dumped
database, yum install mythtv-suite, start backend.  Regularly scheduled
recordings began as expected.
Two front-ends working just fine w/mmx.  Took about 15min waiting for yum to
download packages.  This is fc5 on i386.

If this were windows I'd be screaming with my hair on fire holding on for
dear life in the event of a blue screen of death. ;-)

Relax.  This is Linux.  If things go horribly bad, just restore your
database and go back to 0.19.
