While mythbackend doesn't, please ensure that mythshutdown/mythwelcome 
(whatever code it is that writes the boot time) doesn't, either.  I 
don't use them, so I can't say.  When I saw your first message come 
across, I couldn't remember whether Paul Harrison had changed them (I'm 
also assuming one of them, and not mythbackend, decide and write the 
time to boot, though I didn't look at the code) to look at the suggested 
next run time or mythfilldatabase start/end periods and I haven't gotten 
a chance to look.

> The good news is when the backend does eventually start, if it is past the scheduled time to get Program Guide data, it will grab the data then. So it's not broken, but it might be nice to have the option to wakeup the system to get EPG data.

This I remembered, so since you started to look up the part I didn't 
know, I figured I should post the rest of my response, now.  See the 
following posts (and/or threads) for more info.
