Yes.  If you're not using a packaged version of Myth (i.e. from ATrpms
or Ubuntu's repos or Gentoo's whatever) you'll need to check out
0.20-fixes from SVN.  Directions are at http://svn.mythtv.org/ and it's
the directions for "the stable 0.20 branch."

However, packages are the preferred approach since packagers should be
(and most of them--if not all of them--are) building from the 0.20-fixes
branch, so everything is taken care of for you by someone who actively
tracks issues like this.  :)
