ok - so clearly the patch applied correctly to mythtv-setup, but:

the implication is that your mythbackend isn't patched or installed then.

what output do you get from:
	strings `which mythbackend` | grep LTD

you _should_ get:
	# strings `which mythbackend` | grep LTD
	0ADoHandleDeleteRecording(LTD): asked to delete %s: exists:%d

if you donn't then applying the patch didn't work quite right..

provided you can write to both - no.  (and in fact, the check myth does by
creating a "nfslockfile.lock" verifies this by writing it to each

you could also verify that it exists in all the directories.
