Bug fixes Jan 2013

If a recording straddles 4am then the script as previously published will start taking backups at the first closedown on subsequent days and not the last. Fix is to exit if wakeup time is 'today'. Seems stable - new code uploaded 6 Jan 2013. Phil Brady

Second bug fix. The system started generating zero length backups because /home/mythtv/.mythtv/config.xml missing.

Diagnosed by redirecting output and temporarily adding --verbose to mythconverg_backup.pl call. Not sure why it worked before!

Fixes: a) change notes to copy link across. b) bigger log files c) warning in log if new backup file of at lease 5Mb not created. 17 Jan 2013. Phil
