It's already been fixed in both svn truck and the 0.20-fixes branch so 
you could update to one of those if you compile from source. If you 
don't want to compile your own stuff then you can continue to use the 
current release until 0.20.1 or what ever it's going to be called is 
released just don't use the save to file option. If you choose one of 
the DVD formats and uncheck the burn to DVD option then the archive will 
be created in the work directory you told MythArchive to use. You _will_ 
then have to copy the created archive directory to a safe location 
because each time MythArchive is run it clears the work directory. Or 
you could of cause burn the archive to a DVD.
