I'm running SVN r13317 but I don't think that will matter much!!

I had also seen that updatetime was missing when comparing to other
scripts but it didn't seem to make any difference - that was until I
deleted all the weather tables and removed the weatherversion value from
the settings table.

Everything now works OK - so the 2 changes are the exit on the -t command
and the updatetime value - the version should be upped with those changes
I guess so that the database caching is overridden.

Well done - a very nice solution to both frontend plugin and mythweb :-)
