Thanks for forwarding the email. I thought the solution was not known or you were waiting for an answer and your email had been overlooked.
It seems like you have a temporary solution which is good, at least you have that, but as Cedric mentioned to fix the original problem he will need to recompile PhotoDVD this is not planned for the near future (probably not for the next 2 months - beyond that I don't know).
The software will inform you when there is an update and I also entered a bug here: http://bugs.vso-software.fr/view.php?id=7136
You can follow up on it to see if it has been resolved.
