I assume you are running mytharchive. If it gets stuck there is a lck file
that needs to be deleted otherwise mytharchive thinks it is running. On my
system this is /tmp/logs/mythburn.lck but this could be very different on
yours. My mytharchive work, logs and config folder are all in /tmp so I
assume if you spot one of these you will find the rest.
