More info on this... I did the following as the unix user (user_myth)
who runs mythfrontend, etc:

[user_myth ~]$ mytharchivehelper -p out
[user_myth ~]$ cat out

That looks fine.  But it seems that despite this, mythburn.py is not 
using the correct mysql userid/password to connect to mythconverg.
Instead, it appears to be trying to use the unix id with no password.
Any tips on how I can change this?

Thanks in advance,
