I see, so where it is a channel for which I don't have an xmlid, I should
put 1 instead of deleting the data.

Thanks for the tip.

Now mythfilldatabase is wrong, filling subchannels is obviously always going
to be wrong. It's annoying that I have to now manually fix/remove all that
data (myth 0.24 and earlier did not do that).
Is there a bug somewhere on that, or should I file one?
