And note that once you all update to r24669 or higher (trunk or 
0.23-fixes), you'll actually get a useful error message that explains 
you haven't set a HOME directory.

Qt4 made a change to some functionality, but the documentation still 
insists it provides the same-as-Qt3 functionality.  This prevented our 
"no HOME" detection from working properly.  We've updated MythTV to now 
work with the changed Qt code.
