If you run the following 3 SQL statements while mythbackend and 
mythfrontend are not running, does the DB upgrade complete successfully 
upon restarting mythbackend?  Make sure you create a DB backup ( 
http://mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-23.html#ss23.5 ), first, as I will 
not take responsibility for things going wrong while you're attempting 
to do the cleanup below.  (Actually, you should already have a backup 
that you made just before the upgrade, anyway, but I'm reminding you, 
just in case.)

CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE temprecordedcleanup
  SELECT DISTINCT chanid, starttime
    FROM recordedmarkup;

CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE temprecordedcleanup2
   SELECT DISTINCT p.chanid, p.starttime
     FROM temprecordedcleanup p
LEFT JOIN recorded r
       ON p.chanid = r.chanid AND p.starttime = r.progstart
    WHERE r.chanid IS NULL;

     FROM recordedmarkup p
LEFT JOIN temprecordedcleanup2 r
       ON p.chanid = r.chanid AND p.starttime = r.starttime
    WHERE r.chanid IS NOT NULL;

Note:  The multi-table delete above is not supported in MySQL 3.23 and 
the SQL syntax would have to be different for MySQL 4.0, so it cannot be 
used in a patch.  Instead, if cleanup is required to ensure the safety 
of the DB upgrade, it will have to be done as in #3113 ( 
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3113 )--which, incidentally, adds the 
above cleanup, and the cleanup of recordedseek (which may be the 
reporter's next problem), to daily housekeeping.
