Screen scripts & TMDBException

A number of NN+ users, myself included, have seen an issue with the TMDB API throwing an exception and having the screen script killed.

The simple solution for now is to remove "set -e" from the beginning of the screen script. "set -e" tells the script to stop when there's an error, so it will still throw the error without this, but it won't completely kill your screen script.

I would expect there would be a proper fix for this in the works soon-ish.

Update: As of 4:25 PM EDT on March 23, a fix has been pushed to catch TMDBExceptions, so you can svn up and this error should no longer shut down your screen script.
