 The Mac OS X frontend doesn't work with a remote backend.  The problem is
 that some part of the system is not using the user-supplied IP address for
 the backend.  Here's a transcript of the console output:

                         You probably should modify the Master Server
                         settings in the setup program and set the
                         proper IP address.

 I have set the proper IP address in Setup, as you can see by the
 successful first connection to the database.  Later, however, some
 component tries to use as the backend address and fails.  You
 can replicate this by trying to watch live TV, which will trigger the
