$ ls /var/lib/mythtv/backups
mythconverg-1254-20110328033803.sql     mythconverg-1254-20110402033802.sql.gz
mythconverg-1254-20110329033801.sql     mythconverg-1254-20110403033802.sql.gz

$ ls .mythtv
MythBrowser  channels    mysql.txt  remotecache  themes
backuprc     config.xml  osdcache   themecache   tmp

$ cat ~/.mythtv/backuprc

and doing sudo crontab -e (with the same user) has the following line
38 3 * * * /usr/share/mythtv/mythconverg_backup.pl

so unless cronruns with a different user???
