In MythTV 0.22 (at least the port to FreeBSD), the user 'mythtv'
has '/nonexistent' as its home directory. This is good for security.
But mythfilldatabase (or the grabbers it uses) usually fetch the config
file from $HOME/.mythtv/<input>.xmltv.
If you set up MythTV to automatically run mythfilldatabase, it runs it
as the 'mythtv' user. Since that user doesn't have a home directory
anymore, mythfilldatabase fails.
How is this supposed to work in MythTV 0.22?
