[mythtv] New MythGame not populating rom database

I'm having a problem with the new revision of MythGame. First off  
thanks for the work on this, the new method of adding emus is much  
better. It would be nice if when you select the type of emulator you  
get a default command that would set that emu to go fullscreen,  
include hiscores, etc. Something to help us newbs out. I guess that  
would be a bit of a pain to maintain though.

My problem is that mythgame is not populating the database with my  
roms so when i go to play a game the list is empty. i can see in the  
console that it is finding them because it's full of "Found Rom :  
blah.zip" lines. A quick look at the gamemetadata table in my  
mythconverge database shows that no roms were added. The structure is  
there, but no roms.

I am getting a few warnings when i compile. Not sure if this is  
related or even something to worry about. here is a snipit of the  
output from make:

I also get the warning about gamesettings.h:29 in gamesettings.cpp,  
moc_gamesettings.cpp and dbcheck.cpp

On my Mac I don't get the gamesettings.h warnings and the  
gamehandler.cpp warnings change to this:

gamehandler.cpp:103: warning: unused parameter `QString RomName'
gamehandler.cpp:103: warning: unused parameter `GameHandler*handler'

I get the same behavior of finding the roms, but not adding them on  
both systems. any ideas?

Linux System: FC3, gcc 3.4.3 qt 3.3
Mac System:10.4.1 gcc 3.3 qt 3.3.4
SVN revision 6786 on both machines

thanks
