It does seem to happen consistently with searching.

For instance, the way I generally use get_iplayer is to search for
programmes in a particular category and --pvrqueue the ones that look

so a:

get_iplayer <number> -l

gives info about the programme, but then

get_iplayer <number> --pvrqueue

immediately following yields the "0 matching programmes" error.

...which I don't really understand.
