mythfilldatabase has just called a method that did this (near the 

   SELECT chanid FROM channel WHERE deleted IS NULL                         
     AND sourceid = SomeID AND xmltvid  = SomeXMLTVID;

And the chanid is empty. This is MFDB handling the data generated
by the grabber. I've 'turned' these IDs off in SQLite in the past.

They're harmless, but fixable.
