 As of 0.25, the Network Control socket (port 6456) doesn't work. At least,
 this is the immediately obvious problem. Looking at the logs, I can see
 that it successfully listens on, but then fails listening to the
 next address in the list (for the attached log, that is, but
 the same occurs on another machine where the second, failing address is

 With the frontend still running, I can see that:
 a. there is nothing already listening on that port (`sudo netstat -nlp |
 grep 6456` returns nothing) and
 b. I can listen on that port (`nc -l -p 6456` and even 'nc -l -s -p 6456` start up and print commands from my remote

 I'm not quite sure how to proceed, though. I can see there is a problem
 here, but without knowing ''why'' MythFrontend is not listening, it's a
 bit difficult to find the root cause.
