[mythtv] frontend timeout on localhost

I installed the latest cvs version and I have a small remark.

If you run mythbackend on the same machine as mythfrontend and your ip address 
is not the frontend detects correctly the backend, connects but 
later timeouts. When your change the server settings it doesn't timeout.

I didn't look at the source to find a reason for this but i find it strange.

If the backend could be found automatically (localhost i guess) mythfrontend 
should be able to run without trouble.

The backend_settings.txt should be used only if the localhost doesn't work.

Just my 2 eurocents.

Also did anybody have the same problem as I do have now : mythfrontend says :

> connecting to backend server: localhost:6543
> Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
> player: Can't open audio device:
> open audio:: No such file or directory

I have a SBlive with alsa 9.0rc6, and it ran perfectly with myth before the 
backend/fontend splitting.

I'll be looking at it but if someone knows...

Thank you all
