Package: kaffeine
Version: 0.8.7-1
Severity: important

Kaffeine 0.8.7 (as is included in debian lenny) is unable to edit duration of 
instant record, if filename has illegal characters from EPG of DVB broadcast.

There already is a code line that filters out illegal characters from the 
filename that will actually be written on disk.
But the PROBLEM is that although the instant record starts correctly, kaffeine 
internally still remembers the unfiltered version of the filename
and if one tries to edit the recording duration, the illegal characters in the 
unfiltered filename will cause kaffeine to not accept the edited duration.

The fix to this bug is easy:

1. kaffeine source already has this line:

        rt->name = 
        in method void DvbPanel::newTimer( QString channel, QString name, 
QDateTime begin, QTime duration, bool warn )
        so just copy that line into another place, I will describe it here:
        In method void DvbPanel::setRecord()
        there are two lines like these:
        rt = new RecTimer();
        rt->name = s;
        the line mentioned above should be copied immediately BEFORE these two 
lines and then modified to look like this:
        s = 
        After that fix, just recompile - And the bug is fixed.
