To make matters even more exciting, I get this error only on 
program_listing.php,scheduled_recordings.php .  status.php, 
recorded_programs.php, settings_keys.php, and pretty much the rest of the 
scripts.  If I understand correctly, mail() is only needed if another error 
is encountered.  How can I place a few debug statements here and there to 
find out where things break?

As a matter of fact I've seen these errors before.  Once they were due to the 
fact that I didn't have a video_dir directory.  On first run it created a 
link and on the second I supposed it tried to recreate it, and gave me the 
error message.  Perhaps it's my setup -- my myth and mysql box is separate 
from my http box.

Who knows, upon next cvs checkout things may "just work" again... :-)
