I wasn't sure the mysql.txt is initialized at that point. If you
want to check that and make the change just send me a patch.

This is because the TransLabelSetting doesn't wrap text and
appends a ":", I've added a newline in SVN...

I just wanted to improve the current situation, I don't run
mythtv-setup very often myself, and this whole thing will have
to be rewritten after MythUI. You can hit "ESC" and it will
enter the setup program without checking any box...
Even better would be to add a "delete all" option to the cards,
sources, and channels screens.
