I meant 'version.cpp' here, but you found it anyway. :)

It looks like something is missing.  Did you re-run configure after 
copying over the directory tree?  What does 'git describe' output?

That looks good.

That doesn't.  It should look something like this for a git
checkout of master:

const MPUBLIC char *myth_source_version = "v0.25pre-1086-gc20a472";
const MPUBLIC char *myth_source_path = "master";

No, it should be OK, nothing related has been fixed in the past
week that I know of.

Re-run configure and make again and see what version.cpp looks
like again.  If 'myth_source_path' is not 'master' or 'trunk' (for
old svn checkouts), then the Theme Chooser looks at the
MYTH_BINARY_VERSION which starts with "0.25", so that's
where the invalid directory in the download URL is coming from.
