 The attached patch updates mythlink.pl to work with the new filename
 format in use after changeset [7240].

 I also moved the block that deletes existing links until after the query
 was executed and columns were bound.  I had heard reports of Samba copies
 failing on a machine using mythlink.pl in a cron job with the error saying
 the file does not exist.  It seems that when the links were deleted before
 the query was executed, there was enough of a delay to significantly
 increase the chance of failure due to bad timing of starts when copying a
 block of files.  I haven't proven that this fixes the problem, but it
 shouldn't hurt.

 I haven't yet started trying to re-incorporate your illegal filename
 character substitution with positive lookahead.  I'll post the improved
 substitution code in another ticket (probably won't get a chance to work
 on it until tomorrow).
