I guess I don't understand. Is it a change in V31 to make 
mythfilldatabase run every time the system is booted? I can't find any 
timer, service, or cronjob that does it. How is it done and is it 
controllable?  During system debug with lots of reboots, I'd think 
SchedulesDirect would want it turned off.
