That's a logging bug--it has absolutely no impact on Myth (it just puts 
garbage in your log) so ignore it.

They're not actually rejected, but that screen is /very/ broken after 
the Qt4 port.  http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/7004  (I just happen to 
have very little motivation to fix it as it will eventually be thrown 
away and replaced with a /very/ different mythui'ed version of the 
screen and the bug will be thrown away with the rest of the legacy code.)

The only way to edit playback profiles in trunk/0.22-fixes is to do it 
"one profile at a time."  Add a new profile entry to the profile group.  
It will (wrongly) say "addentry rejected" and then you won't be able to 
add new entries.  Select Next all the way through to Finish, then go 
back in and you'll see the entry went in.  Repeat until you have all 
your entries.
