In addition to my reply some minutes ago, are you really sure about that ?
Because I run a remote frontend, not as root and not having mounted the remote
video storage directory, and it works fine (mythbackend is running as root).
So, there _must_ be another reason for this behaviour you're experiencing.
If I recall correctly mythfrontend just tells mythbackend to delete a file,
through the TCP port and/or the mysql db. It does not attempt to delete the
file by itself (and obviously, IF it did that would really wreak havoc when
using multiple frontends, too). So you have to look elsewhere...
