Actually I just dumped the settings table to a separate file, and when I 
get the permissions fiasco figured out, I will diff the old one against 
the new one, to see what changed and what I need to change.

But as noted in my new message, there is something more basis going on, 
that mythtv or mysql does not have permission to create temporary 
tables. And the 'right' places are owned by mysql and perm'ed as 
775....so this is totally weird.
