I built for x86_64 from that branch earlier this month 
(31Pre836.gffdc90e), and although I wasn't looking at it critically 
playback seemed fine.  I didn't persist in using it because my normal 
workflow uses mythcommflag --rebuild, which failed.  I didn't report it 
then because work on it would be a distraction, but I would like to see 
it fixed in due course.
