[mythtv-users] Cannot get User jobs to execute

I have a bash script I want to be run when a recording has finished.  I
added the user jobs in mythsetup, and when it didn't work, kept tweaking
the settings table directly, but with no luck.  Here is what I've got: 
select * from settings where value like '%userjob1%':
JobAllowUserJob1      1      mythbox
UserJob1    /usr/sbin/SaveMythRecording.sh %CHANID% %STARTTIME% %DIR%
%FILE%  mythbox
AutoRunUserJob1      1      mythbox
UserJobDesc1     My user job       mythbox

NOTE: I also added another set of duplicate records with hostname=null. 
In my "record" table autouserjob1 is "1" for all shows.  And I confirmed
in mythweb that it is checked.  I've tried reloading the front end and
back end.  And I've confirmed the permissions on the script allow
execution (ie -rwxr-xr-x).  The bash script just contains a simple:
echo "$(date) $0-$1-$2-$3-$4" >> /home/donerecording.log

so I will know when the script is being run (my home directory has full
permissions).  But that file is never created.  In my mythbackend.log
when a recorded program is over there is no mention of the user job:

Anybody have any ideas?  Thanks for any help.
