Thanks for your reply!

I checked the mysql log as you requested for that time span looks
fine, nothing unusual.  I also examined my mythfrontend log and see
that most likely I hit the power shutdown switch just before the last
mysql statement that you see in my dump.  Perhaps mysql shut down in
response to the power switch before that message was generated and it
should be ignored.
