[mythtv] Database schema checker

I'm using one connection per test/group of tests. I also cache some data for 
several tests, but not much at the moment.

I issued the warning as I've seen MythBackend sometimes die/stop recording 
when the script ran. I've not seen it for awhile so maybe there's not really 
a problem anymore.

I just hacked the script together to help get a MythTV system back up and 
running after a system crash. Maybe if I get the time I'll sit down and 
rewrite the DB connection code to use a global function that returns a DBI
