I went the Media Browser repository and it too does not mention Lion. I plan to try that version and see if it is fixed. They migrated their source to a new system, which has no obvious instructions on checking it out. I will look some more soon.

I wanted to post it this morning, but my software for connecting to geditcom.com has stopped working in Lion too. Once I have that solved I will post it. I will post just a version of 1.6b2 for Lion with the Media Browser removed. It will appear on
