Actally you are correct, it is smart enough.  On a
closer look, it does not seem to be able to create new
mpg files, even though the permissions have not

I am firing up mythbackend in a terminal window as
root, and mythfrontend in a second terminal as a
regular user.  Does it use the frontend or the
backend's permissions to save recordings?
