I ended up just completely wiping and re-installing mythbuntu.
Reconfiguring everything to get back to where I was.. Of course we lost
tons of recordings, but my music and movies are separate, on the
network, so that's safe.
I did obtain the backup and restore scripts, and now have been manually
saving any customizatons to a folder on the network in case of emergency.
