I'm getting this following error when running imdb queries using imdb.py on myth 0.22 (mythbuntu 9.10 with the daily build repos enabled).
(I'm using imdb.py as a secondary source for jamu)

./imdbpy.py -D 0106881

Traceback (most recent call last):

    data['akas'] = data.get('other akas', []) + data.get('akas', [])
TypeError: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, list found

This has started happening only in the last few days, at least sometime last week this same query would have worked.
Do I need an upgrade of something, and if so, what?
