It works if the DVD device is "/dev/sr0". Looks like mythfile_stat (in mythiowrapper) calls lstat() instead of stat()?

Sorry, I meant to add that "/dev/dvd" is a symbolic link to "/dev/sr0" on my system.

(In [25924]) Change lstat() to stat() in mythfile_stat(). This should fix playback of DVDs when /dev/dvd or the path given is a link instead of being an actual file or block device.

Closes #8834. Thanks to Gregorio Gervasio for reporting this, I thought I noticed something like this the other day, but hadn't had time to track it down yet.
