Thanks Brad and Dave for your replies, but I'm still no better off:

Unfortunately, I /am/ using SVN, and have been for ages - the latest
I've tried is r14957 from 2007-11-25 - but it ain't having none of it
for me.

"Machine Status" in system information says:

    MythTV Drive #1:
        Directory: master:/AVStore/tv
    MythTV Drive #2:
        Directory: slave:/AVStore/tv

I can't seem to use NFS names in the setup, so on both machines the
directory is just referred to as /AVStore/tv. On the master, it's local,
but on the slave it's an NFS mount.

There's nothing I can think of that would prevent the slave from knowing
that it's using a remote directory, like the mythtv user not having the
ability to read the mount table.

So, any more theories gratefully received. Maybe I'm going to have to
bite the bullet and wade into the source!
