 Continuation of Bug #11030, found here:

 Gentoo-user:  I am running mythtv-0.27.5, and I see this same error in my
 mythtv logs:

 2015-11-16 14:30:32.159088 E [6648/6648] CoreContext serverpool.cpp:416
 (listen) - Failed listening on TCP [fe80::5054:ff:
 fe37:d1e7%eth0]:6544 - Error 9: The address is not available

 I am not willing to disable IPv6 - at this point, I absolutely rely upon,
 and make extensive use of IPv6, not only with all my system stuff (ntp,
 amanda-tape-backup, avahi, ssh, ...) but also with mythtv and the frontend
 to backend connections.

 In contrast (apparently) to the original Bug, at this time mythbackend
 *does* run.
