Also, FWIW, you should be using the 0.24-fixes package for mythtv, 
mythplugins (in the same mythtv repo), and mythweb (in a separate 
mythweb repo).  They're available as described at:


Specifically the part that says:

*Stable:* If you'd like to get the 0.24 stable branch, do this:

git clone -b fixes/0.24 git://github.com/MythTV/mythtv.git
git clone -b fixes/0.24 git://github.com/MythTV/mythweb.git


Or, if you don't want to use git to pull a copy, you can get a tarball 
from github by going to https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/tree/fixes/0.24 
and then clicking on the Zip button and doing the same at 
https://github.com/MythTV/mythweb/tree/fixes/0.24 .

There have been several fixes since the 0.24.2 tarball was released, so 
using the current -fixes code will give you those bug fixes.

As far as myththemes goes, however, there is no reason to download and 
install the myththemes tarball (or repo on github).  Instead, with 0.24 
and above, the use of the MythTV Theme Chooser (under mythfrontend 
Utilities/Setup) is preferred.  That way, you only install those themes 
that you want, and you get a choice from a /much/ larger selection of 
themes (you may need to use MENU|Show remote theme packages or similar 
to see additional ones), and you get notifications when your chosen 
theme is updated so you can install the fixed version.  (Note, also, 
that the myththemes repo has been emptied and all themes moved elsewhere 
(into individual repos) for 0.25, so the myththemes repo/tarball will be 
disappearing to help encourage use of the Theme Chooser.  Having the 
repo/tarball was confusing to users, who expected they needed to install 
it, so we've removed it to help prevent this confusion.  See the README 
at the bottom of https://github.com/MythTV/myththemes .)

That said, thank you for the report.  The tarballs are used by some of 
the distros, so we will look into the issue and get it fixed.
