[mythtv-users] mythbackend does not have access to mysql.txt after .22 upgrade to .23

I just upgraded to JYA .23 and now when I start mythfront is tells me it
cannot connect to the database.  What I found is the backend is showing the
error below (BE and FE on same machine).  As it turns out, when the system
tries to start the back end it gets permission denied when trying to access
the database.  Yet if i start it as a user or root using "mythbackend"
command it connects just fine.  Did the configuration file location get
changed or something?  Obviously /.myth doesn't exist and show below.

Would you like to configure the database connection now? [no]
[console is not interactive, using default 'no']

Database error was:

To summarize, only using the upscript to start the backend fails.  Any
starting with the mythbackend command from the terminal and it works fine.
