We may have 2 different problems, or not. I suspect that it is a problem 
with mfdb. And it is still around.

I can run mythfilldatabase in a terminal, and it finishes properly. If 
run by the internal 'cron' settings, it fails.

Unfortunately, there are no useful entries in the mfdb log.

I am presently set up to test using an external cron, to see if that 
makes any difference, but it will take 24 or 48 hours to tell.
