Someone wrote to me a few month ago that mythcommflag was segfaulting
on his machine... Provided it was working fine for me and others, and
his setup was crashing in many other places and he had trouble
compiling to start with. When asked about a backtrace I was given
something unusable with no debugging symbols : as such I rudely
dismissed the issue as being on his machine only.

I haven't touched anything related to mythcommflag ; my changes are
purely related to the frontend only. I have no problem with the
existing backend , commflag so I never had to touch it.

So I would assume that any issues you see in my repo be mythcommflag
would exist with the original mythbuntu packages.

If you are running my testing repository, it is compiled with
debugging symbols. So if you could run mythcommflag in gdb and provide
a backtrace, I could have a look of what's going on.

But if there's a bug there, it ain't me :)
