I can't believe you just did that...  I was going to throw together the 
patch and mail it to you--completely untested--to let you do the hard 
part (the testing).

Then, when I got in there, I started looking and found there's another 
place that needs updating for manual-skip mode.  As a matter of fact, 
it's the one that Chris mentioned here 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/217500#217500 and 
that I unknowingly pointed out in the post to which Chris was responding 
and the one whose existence I subjectively disavowed in my response 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/217645#217645 .  The 
reason I subjectively disavowed its existence is because my usage of 
MythTV (and most users' usage) makes the one forgotten place an extreme 
corner case.

Unfortunately, one adjective that describes me better than "lazy" does 
is "compulsive," so once I found the bug, I couldn't walk away without 
stepping on it.  It was just as easy to test two cases as one, so, 
surprise (and enjoy the patch that will be up soon--unless I don't have 
enough time to do finish the build before How I Met Your Mother in 2 1/4
