dist-upgrade? Are you sure?

I _was_. My budget-ci patches have been modified somewhat since then [1] and
are currently in the v4l-dvb repository; they should be in 2.6.20-rc1 (I
think that they're already in 2.6.19-git*).

Not entirely - 2.6.18 didn't seem too good generally here, but 2.6.19 seems
fine (apart from, perhaps, a small problem which is manifest via apt
updates). Anyway, this is with different hardware, and I have a couple of
cx88 patches which need to be updated...
