[mythtv-users] Latest Mythbuntu weekly build broke my backend

Mythbuntu 9.04 box, using the testing repos to run 0.22.

Every weekend I run an upgrade via apt-get on my master BE to keep it up to
date. This week, however, I seem to have run into issues. I updated,
rebooted and tried a manual mythfilldatabase but received the following:

2009-10-11 13:27:37.091 Using configuration directory = /home/matt/.mythtv
2009-10-11 13:27:37.091 Application binary version (0.22.20090928-1) does
not match libraries (0.22.20091008-1)
2009-10-11 13:27:37.091 This application is not compatible with the
installed MythTV libraries. Please recompile after a make distclean
2009-10-11 13:27:37.092 Failed to init MythContext, exiting.

Upon further review, my backend process was not running and trying to start
it manually gave me the same error. I then tried another apt-get update /
apt-get upgrade to see if something just didn't update that I overlooked,
and received the following:

matt at magicbe:/etc/init.d$ sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
  mythtv-backend mythtv-backend-master mythtv-common mythtv-database
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded.

I'll be the first to say that I am somewhat terrible with the joys of
apt-get, so I was hoping somebody would know why these packages were held
back, and what could be done about it.

Here are my mythbuntu repos:
deb http://weeklybuilds.mythbuntu.org/mythbuntu/trunk-0.22/ubuntu jaunty
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/mythbuntu/testing/ubuntu jaunty main
