I believe all the reporters were running 0.24 proper rather than 0.24-fixes.
The packager for ArchLinux has stuck to 0.24. I will poke him and point him
here as a reason to move to 0.24-fixes. I don't believe there is a
configuration issue, unless you have seen reports of the
"mythconverg.settings doesn't exist" variety that are running 0.24-fixes?

cedric (5.5.9/5.5.11 & exported-0.24)

eratosthenes (exported-0.24 & probably 5.5.8)

nicoalas: (probably exported-0.24/5.5.11)
