OK.  It sounds like you may be using the "Run mythfilldatabase at time
suggested by grabber" but the time that was last suggested (i.e. by a
"manual" execution of mythfilldatabase) is not in the window during
which mythfilldatabase is allowed to run.  To fix it, change the
"mythfilldatabase Execution Start/End" times to 0 and 24, respectively.

In 0.20.2 (and 0.20-fixes), the window is "moved" to a period of a
couple of hours around the suggested time by the backend when the
backend runs mythfilldatabase.  So, if mythfilldatabase is run manually,
no one is updating the window and it may or may not line up with the
last-updated window.  In SVN trunk (and, in 0.21, when it's released),
the window isn't changed, rather it's ignored.  See
