I confirm this bug.  I'm seeing the same symptoms on my Mythbuntu
system, recently upgraded to 0.22.0+fixes22594-0ubuntu1.

I don't have any mythbackend or frontend logs since Oct 31, when I
installed the upgrade.  I assume the logging defaults changed, and
would appreciate knowing how to re-enable logging.

I don't know anything about storage groups - I have not created any
new ones, or changed directories since my initial installation.  Both
frontend and backend are running on the same system, and the host name
has not changed.

Is there a easy way to tell what programs will auto-expire next?  Or
to adjust a particular program's place in the queue?

Otherwise, can somebody provide a manual workaround?  I am comfortable
with the command line, but I do not know anything about mysql.
