are you sure you've actually done a "make install" & that you're running the
newly-compiled code?

as a suggestion, to verify you are, run the backend with verbose recording
("mythbackend -v record") and if you are running it, when you go to record
something, it should tell you what directory it chose to store the recording
in.  something like:

 filesystem:(0)/m1, free:44659638, total:307663800, used:264050872 (chose 0)
 filesystem:(1)/m2, free:140634532, total:159963408, used:19328876 (chose 1)
 filesystem:(2)/m3, free:9740384, total:192292124, used:182551740 (chose 1)
 filesystem:(3)/m4, free:41359492, total:292994784, used:251635292 (chose 1)
 filesystem:(4)/m5, free:43838968, total:292994784, used:249155816 (chose 1)

if you don't see this, then you're not running myth with the patch applied.
