[mythtv-users] Mythweb Channel Icon problem

The routine which copies Channel Icon images from Myth to Mythweb isn’t
working correctly.

At all times when I view Channel Icons on a frontend or in mythtv-setup I
see what I expect, but recently a couple of images were updated and then
they didn’t display on Mythweb – they showed as missing/corrupted image
rather than no image.

The icons are stored in /home/mythtv/.mythtv/channels/ and have user and
group permission mythtv, but they are readable by all.

Mythweb seems to access the images from /var/cache/mythweb/image_cache and
most images here are correct. I understand that when a new icon is added or
used something copies it to the image_cache folder. In my case that process
is producing corrupted images; each is 44Bytes. It is an empty xml file.
This is the same for PNG and jpg.

If I manually copy the icons from channels to image_cache I see the images
I expect on Mythweb, however I would like to see if I can understand what
is going wrong as this may indicate something else is wrong.

I am running Myth 0.28.0+fixes.20160413 and Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS
