Sounds like you have/have had multiple versions of Myth running.  Did 
you by any chance upgrade from KnoppMyth R5A22 to either R5A26 or 
R5A30?  Do you have a backend running a different version from a 
frontend?  Do you have multiple frontends, perhaps with different 
versions?  Do you have multiple installations of Myth (i.e. one in /usr 
and one in /usr/local)?
