Repeated scans report inappropriate 'Failed to find any channels'

HDHomeRun DVB on a Mac, r20465. Initial scan works beautifully, progress dialog reports 'Scan Progress: Found 35' and final popup 'Found 35 new non-conflicting DVB channels.'
However, after 'Insert All', any subsequent scan will report 'Failed to find any channels', which threw me for a while (I thought I had broken something in recent HDHR mods). To reduce confusion, I think we need something like this:

% svn diff libs/libmythtv/channelscan/channelimporter.cpp
