Well that can't really happen; that echo statement comes before the suspected 
command so at least that echo *must* work!  So I'd have to assume either your 
csh is broken, or something in your mandrake.  Does a shellscript with only 
that echo statement work at all ?  And why use csh anyway, I thought that 
shell was ehm... deprecated ?  What does bash do ?

Correct.  But from what you write, the bug you have is not in mythtv.
