I am unable to reproduce, and both an in-context and command line Query for this item (Desperate Housewives Season 6 Episode 2) work properly. A retry for this user should "just work". It is possible the user has a corrupted tvdb API cache, which can be fixed by doing:

rm -rf /tmp/tvdb_api_*

For reference, a test of this query:

./usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/ -D 73800 6 2
