myth.rebuilddatabase.pl has one major shortcoming. If you are not 
actually rebuilding the database, it will enter information about the 
file into the database as you answer the questions, but myth will later 
report that the file does not exist, because the database reports the 
file size as zero. I have just had that happen as I am building a new 
BE/FE on new hardware.

I did an 'ls -al' to find the file size and then poked it into 
mythconverg. But it really requires a file-handling subroutine to do 
that. I was in a hurry.
