Yes, that's it.  Apologies.  I should have mentioned it in the earlier 
thread.  But the ticket isn't just a bug report; it includes a drop-in 
replacement for use in 0.24 for the cutlist translator routine in 
mythburn.py.  I usually cut before entering MythArchive, using the same 
logic in the mythcutprojectx script, but I have used the modified 
internal version with success.  I'm afraid I don't know why the broken 
version hasn't yet been dropped.  Maintainability ought to be better if 
a new version was eventually based on mythcommflag --getcutlist instead 
of addressing the db directly, but I kept as close as I could to the 
existing code.
