It's also possible that you had defined that directory in some other 
Storage Group on a different (no-longer-in-use) host in the past, and 
didn't properly decommission the host...


specifically the Storage Group stuff...

If you want to post the output of:

mysql -umythtv -p mythconverg -e 'SELECT * FROM storagegroup;'

I can tell you exactly what's happening.  (Feel free to send directly to 
me if you don't want it on the list.)
