I'm in the process of rearranging the hard disk structure in a new system
and looking through the old file system I found that my osdcache directory
was 520MB! Apparently this directory has been retired as it doesn't exist
in my new .mythtv directory structure. However, I do see a themecache
directory that currently holds 534MB. This is probably normal, right?
