Jack, I'm sure the link used to point to the file directly too.  I
have a clean installation of mythweb and the problem is exactly as you
describe it.  I suppose this is a problem no one has faced before, and
it may be tied to using the upgrade path for mythtv (not mythweb)
instead of a clean install.  I couldn't investigate further last night
because I couldn't figure out how to get the php server logs.  I'll
look into it further and see how it goes.
