Thats why i was wondering if its a corner case...
interestingly, thougth, the series name shows up in xbmc with the colon in its name... but if i rename the show files and directory to contain the colon on my myth backend, then xbmc doesn't seem to find anything.
Would a debug log from xbmc help? i could delete the series from my xbmc library, and then do a library update in both cases (names with colons, names w/o colons...)
Actually, i just looked at the xbmc debug log and used the query on the web like xbmc did - and it returns differently: try this query:
moreover, putting a colon in that search or %3A doesn't change the results...
