Maybe you're running into a tangential issue to mine.

Since I'm setting the $MYTHCONFDIR environment variable for
mythbackend, that's where it's being downloaded. If you're not setting
$MYTHCONFDIR then it tries to download them into $HOME.

It's also downloaded as whatever user you're running mythbackend as,
since the backend is actually doing the downloading.
