does the SVN version of rb-download fail?

svn checkout https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/redbutton/

I've made some changes since the last release to do with how it handles
frontend devices.

I've actaully got one of these Win TV sticks (ID 2040:7050) - though I
haven't built a new kernel that can handle it yet... is support in
2.6.19 or do I need to wait for 2.6.20 or will I have to get a bleeding
edge git tree from somewhere?
