This sounds like the issue/fix discussed here - - just the client change, you shouldn't need to clean and sync channels since you were already running the updated parsing in 2.7.

If you upgraded the clients, possibly this fix got overwritten? I'm not familiar with what comes from the debclients url you mentioned - I don't know if this fix has been applied.
