Ah, the same thing also happens when the TMDb website is having issues.
It seems they've been having a lot of database issues, lately. Or,
perhaps it's just that the site is overloaded. (I've heard a lot of
programs that use it are not storing information locally, but just
hitting it every time info is needed.)

The script in trunk (which you get when you re-run the instructions from
the wiki - ) has all the patches that fix all the reported bugs
(including your Hulk bug). The only patch left just changes the error
you're seeing to a nice, human-readable message.
