Send in a patch to CVS -- filling the database has been reworked completely 
(ie, c++ instead of perl), but I'm sure that it still won't deal with 
channels gone missing.

Why not grab current CVS, see if it still acts funny, and fix it?  Probably be 
the easiest thing to do, rather than waiting until the next release (which 
will probably be at least a couple more weeks).
