That's *perfect*, maybe. The entries in ~ and ~mythtv should be symbolic links to
the one in /etc/mythtv. I'm asking because it's common for one of those links to
be broken and be replaced by a file and I've never been able to find out why.

This please:

   ls -ld /etc/mythtv/config.xml {~,~mythtv}/.mythtv/config.xml
