Please create a ticket on trac so I can look into this post-0.24 release.
The -users mailing list really isn't the right place for an apparent bug
Also, please include the UPnP's client agent string (you can find it by
running the backend with -v upnp). The whole agent string, please. It's
likely I may need to put in a specific exception.
Also, please include the length of the description of the offending show(s),
etc for debugging.
