[mythtv-users] Unusual Problem with mythfilldatabase

Good morning,
I have recently installed a MythTV system. After having run with 0.20 for the longest time, it was time for an upgrade.
Everything is working as expected except for one thing: mythfilldatabase. It simply gets to a point where it seems to do nothing or wait for something that never comes.
Here a bit of background information:
The system is running on MythTV 0.25+fixes. I am using SchedulesDirect for guide data. I used to have an account login with the "@" and some people had indicated that this was a source of problem so I changed the login to remove the "@". The system is a MythBuntu 12.04 box. When I run mythfilldatabase by hand from a terminal, here's the output I get: (I have activated debugging info but it doesn't show me all that much - or I don't know what to look for)

After this output, it stays there for however long I leave it there; it never completes. I did search the mailing list and didn't find any solution that seemed to work here. If this was ever discussed, can someone point me in the right direction? Any suggestiong, comments, ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks you.
