No, that file does not exist but that directory does as it is a custom path of 
my own. I think it could be some kind of a leftover temp file so I guess 
mediatomb somehow has kept it recorded in its database and didn't wiped it 
out. I should look for some option to flush the DB.

Thanks again for your help,
