That exactly explains the behaviour I'm seeing.  I often run
mythfrontend or mythsetup over ssh to tweak some setting when I'm at my
desk (I've been meaning to install a local mythfrontend, but that's
another story).  If the cache could keep two or three settings instead
of just one (or if it were configurable), that would be nice.

Not a big deal--now I understand what's going on.
