OK, somewhat of a false alarm, but not really.  When I configured the 
temp directory for Mytharchive to use, I had a typo in there.  I fixed 
that and the job started, but then it fails with the following in the 
mythburn.log file:

Waiting for mythtranscode to create the fifos
ERROR: Waited too long for mythtranscode to create the fifos - giving up!!

2009-11-22 22:39:02.912 Using protocol version 50
2009-11-22 22:39:03.042 mythtranscode: 0% Completed @ 0 fps.

Any ideas?  I know that when I had Mytharchive troubles on Mythbuntu 
9.04 on 0.21-fixes, it ended being that the version of ffmpeg that was 
installed was a watered-down, busted up version.  I had to remove it, 
install a better version, and then it was OK.  Is this still the case 
for 9.10 on 0.22-fixes?
