OTOH, I've been running with it for a few days now, and can't see any 
difference. I guess I was hoping it would stop considering the "Moment 
of Zen" at the end of The Daily Show as part of the preceding commercial 
break. Perhaps I need to try tweaking the setting for "merge breaks 
shorter than X seconds" (or however it's phrased).

The description of what this patch does definitely sounds like it should 
be a big improvement, though. It definitely doesn't hurt.
