optimize_mythdb.pl is the proper solution for fixing crashed tables, but 
unfortunately it will not work with a crashed settings table because it 
won't be able to get the information it needs to fix the DB.

You'll need to use the mysql tools to fix it--I'm planning to put in an 
override to allow optimize_mythdb.pl to work, even with a broken 
settings table, but haven't written the code, yet.
