  Well that fact of the matter is that the schema updates did change the 
password for mythconverg, because after a system restart the good password did 
not work and the system forced password was back, so after having retried a 
connect to mysql to confirm the password change, and getting in, obviously I 
need to deal with /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt and config.xml on the master backend.
