[mythtv] Mythfilldatabase clearing icon names

I've got the problem that every time after I run mythfilldatabase the 
icon fields (which I filled manually) have been cleared again.
I've tried looking at the code for mythfilldatabase, but it's not 
immediately obvious what it does and when it does it (code comments 
anyone? ;-).
So my question is if anybody could tell me what might be going wrong here.

Maybe it's related to the fact that I see some file.exists() in the 
code? Does it set the fields to empty if it can't find the images? That 
could be it because I'm using the icons only for mythweb2 right now 
(haven't been able to find out where to put them so the EPG can use 
them). Shouldn't the code just leave the information in the database as 
it is?

Any help would be appreciated because I'm not going to enter that data 
manually each time ;-)
