Call for testers: MythTV 0.21 port upgrade

I'm running the mythtv port from the original patch... at the
beginning of this thread and I've seen something extremely frustrating
ever since the Daylight savings time started...

(Using an HDhomerun for the tuner).

I can run the command to reload my schedule, and it looks correct in
the grid view ...   At some unknown interval, sometimes as much as 30
minutes later, one or more of the channels will shift their schedule
as if it's applying a correction to the timezone after-the fact.
Re-running mythfilldatabase --refresh-today sets the schedule back to
what it's supposed to be ... and then some other channel shifts.

My /etc/localtime corresponds to EST5EDT ... and my OS is 7.1pl3 ...

> mythbackend --version
Please include all output in bug reports.
MythTV Version   : Unknown
MythTV Branch    : tags/release-0-21
Library API      : 0.21.20080304-1
Network Protocol : 40
Options compiled in:
 freebsd release using_oss using_arts using_backend using_dbox2
using_frontend using_hdhomerun using_iptv using_v4l using_x11
using_xrandr using_xv using_bindings_perl using_bindings_python
using_ffmpeg_threads using_live

I've tried setting the timezone in mythtv-config from auto to -4 --
which is EDT ... but it doesn't seem to make any difference ... the
overcorrection seems to happen at random intervals ...

Anybody have any ideas?    Any possibility anybody's working on the
"fixes" release?
