done. however, it has made things slightly worse.
the 'Video' view in mythweb, no longer displays all titles in all
subfolders as tiles (it still shows the folder structure on the left

drwxr-xr-x 2 33 33 4096 2011-11-15 19:36 tv_icons
lrwxrwxrwx 1 33 33   22 2011-11-15 19:36 video -> /var/lib/mythtv/videos
lrwxrwxrwx 1 33 33   23 2011-11-15 19:36 video_covers -> /data2/mythtv/trailers/
