Lyngsat channel icon search fails on nonalphabetic characters?

Description

There may be something wrong with the channel icon search regarding either spaces or other nonalphabetic characters, such as parens.

I did a "missing channel icons" scan using the lyngsat-logo.com search functionality. The search returned *no* results for "Fox" (or "FOX"), and the logo in question (here: http://www.lyngsat-logo.com/tvcountry/us_12.html) was not returned when searching for either substring ("FO" or "OX"). However, it *was* returned when searching for "Fox us".

Since at Lyngsat-logo the generic network logo is named "Fox (us)" it appears alphabetically first in ordered search results for "Fox". It seems like the Myth search functionality is tripping up on either the space character or the left paren, and reporting no results.

This is the only network in my lineup that has a parenthesis in the Lyngsat-logo icon name, and the only one that has the issue. I did not discover it before because I was using local-station-callletter icons.

This is on Mythbuntu 10.4; hope to test it again on 10.10 shortly.

I don't even use channel icons and since this has been assigned to me I assume channel icons are not exactly a popular feature. :)

You *are* joking, right?

No, he's not joking. But this channel icon search will be/has been totally replaced by the one in the new backend setup, so nobody is going to be looking at fixing bugs in the deprecated one.
