Thanks Mike.

The newer version printed out the password mythtv was using to access
the database.

I couldn't log on to mysql at the command line using that password.

Going into mysql as root, I found:

mysql> select `Host`,`User`,`Password` from `user` WHERE `User` =
| Host      | User   | Password                                  |       
| localhost | mythtv | *CC8F35F587CA5A556B4132C2407E556D92172FFC |       
| %         | mythtv | *57BCDA9886E934E718338C6BD6E71970EAB9FD24 |       
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)  

So the passwords didn't match.

The "%" password was OK (reset it and the hash didn't change), but the
localhost needed resetting.  After that, it worked well.
