[vdr] Epgsearch does not create timers

I am having difficulty getting Epgsearch plugin to create any timers.

This is the procedure I am going through that I believe should cause Epgsearch
plugin to create timers:
Program Guide
Highlight a scheduled program that I wish to create search parameters for e.g.
'Space 1999'
Press 0
Press red button 'Commands'
4 Create search
Use as search timer: yes
Enter to save the search
Press the back button
Press 0
Press blue button 'search'
Select the search just created
Executing the search finds 'Space 1999' in the epg ok
Press the back button
Press blue button 'Actions'
3 Trigger search timer update
Confirm with enter button
Press blue button 'Actions'
5 Show timers created
The display shows '0 Timers'
Exit by pressing menu button

No timers set by epgsearch

I am using epgsearch version 0.9.20. My epg is received from UK "Freeview"
DVB-t. VDR is running as root. There are no patches to vdr. The only other plugin
running at the same time is -Pskincurses because the VDR system is headless.
I am using VDR version 1.4.4.

Am I doing something wrong here or is this a bug?
