Change "mythfilldatabase Execution Start" to 0 and "mythfilldatabase
Execution End" to 23. This is most likely why it's not running every
day. The issue was fixed for 0.21, so another option is to upgrade. :)

Best bet would be to upgrade to 0.21 since nobody is really likely to be
debugging 0.20.2 issues. I think most (if not all) of the commonly-used
packages/distros have been updated to 0.21. And, if the approach to
upgrade is not straightforward (i.e. some Ubuntu users have a
more-challenging upgrade path, IIRC) I'm sure others on the list can
help you find out your options.

If it is the Qt 3.3.8 problem, it will have no impact on
mythfilldatabase (though MythArchive and a few other things are a
different story). The problem should be fixed by newer packages of Qt
3.3.8, so upgrading your distro may fix this, also.
