During the upgrade aptitude popped up a dialog asking what user I should
use to administer myth on mysql (roughly--it's from memory). "root" was
filled in as the response, with a recommendation to accept it. I did.

dpkg: error processing mythtv (--configure):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
Despite this, myth seems to be running fine.

upgrade code I'm likely to need to execute?
