Duh! I feel pretty stupid now...

That's where the backend-setup channel editor stores its downloaded icons.
The wiki page http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Channel_icons also instructs its
readers to put icons there. I agree it's not a sensible place for them.
When I first set up my system, my home directory was group and world
readable, so the icons worked in mythweb. Later, I locked down my home
directory so I could use sshd "PasswordAuthentication no".
However, I don't understand is why those icons that I added before my
home-directory lock-down continued to display in mythweb after the lockdown.
Are the icons copied/cached somewhere else besides the path in the channel
table "icon" field?
In any case, all is working now.
Thanks for the help!
