I get this too, but its because the backend segfaults, are you sure
the backend's still running ? In my case I don't see anything
suspicious in the logs, only when I run it manuall y (i.e. not my
/etc/init.d script) do I see that the backend segfaults as it tries to
instantiate a scanner :(. [I know, I will provide backtraces as soon
as I find any spare time!!]
