You might be able to fix this with the "master backend override"  
setting in mythtv-setup.  In theory this should make the master grab  
the file from its own filesystem if it notices it's there.  In  
practice I've found it doesn't work 100% of the time.

Somehow Myth figured it out on my 0.21 system, but I'm not sure how.   
It seems under certain conditions it will figure out that two  
backends are sharing common storage.  Even MythArchive worked on the  
slave backend last time I tried it, but that was at least one upgrade  

I think SVN has much better support for this sort of thing, though.
