I've been running the same version under Gentoo only 32 bit x86 for
about a week and a half now.  I've always used all methods with strict
commflagging enabled.  I didn't change anything under 0.22 and it
appears to be working just as reliably as ever.  In my case this is
with U.S. OTA broadcast shows.
