Somehow Mythfilldatabase has become borken in the last few days.
It runs, but reports near the end:

2008-05-04 02:41:24.845 Encountered error in grabbing data.
It *appears* that either mysql or datadirect.cpp has a permissions
problem. I had not changed any permissions for mysql. In fact, the only
change was to update the SVN level a few days ago, which is when mfdb
started to fail.
I grep'ed around and found that this is from /libs/libmyth/datadirect.cpp.
That file has tmpdir hardwired as "/tmp" and datadirect.cpp tries to
create temporary subfolders under /tmp. I chowned and chgrped /tmp to
mysql in an attempt to fix things but still got the error. I chmod'ed to
777: no joy.
