I was wondering where you got your MythTV and whether you're using the 
"bleeding edge" development version or the stable 0.20-fixes branch.  
Basically, you can just post the output of:

mythbackend --version

(Oh, and in case you were wondering, unless you're doing your MythTV 
homework keeping up with -dev and -commits lists, you /should/ be using 
0.20-fixes, not SVN trunk.)
