diff16 at SVN is complete although may be slightly different to what i run
here.  regardless, you should still have "LTD" appearing in the above if you
applied the patch correctly (as diff16 in SVN clearly has the string 'LTD'
in the StartedRecording Recording verbose logging).

one of two things has happened:
 1. when you applied the patch (e.g. "patch -p1 <patchname>"),
    for whatever reason, some hunks weren't applied correctly, or
 2. the build system didn't pick up the change to all files & didn't
    recompile them.

if you're not sure of (1) then download a fresh source tree & apply the
patches again & recompile.

if you are SURE of (1), then just do
	make clean
	make
and verify the resulting mythbackend that has been built has the string.


cheers,

lincoln.
