Is it the other way around?  I think it is trying to install .24.0+fixes
from 2011.04.16 because that is the latest version of the unpatched
libraries that it knows about, but I applied your patch to the .24.1+fixes
source.  This is because Mythbuntu 11.04 comes with .24.0 and not .24.1.  I
added the MythTV and Mythbuntu updates (http://mythbuntu.org/repos) for
.24.x.  I thought this would bring me to to .24.1+fixes, but I guess it did
not.  I only got .24.0+fixes.  From a MythTV point of view, this is not a
problem, but it seems to have confused the package manager.
