0.19, Gentoo, and for scheduled as well.

I have a theory - that mythbackend is returning a myth:// URL instead  
of a local file. The decision seems to depend on whether a given  
request is "local", and that means matching machine names. I'm  
rebuilding a backend now that dumps names out when the request comes  
in and we'll see what it prints.

My guess is that it's a name mismatch - possibly name vs IP or similar.
