Fixed, noticed it as well, haven't actually looked at the init script (I
don't use it, yet).

It was never (and I use never in the common use of never, as in I don't
remember when) a problem of supporting --user. The problem is that the
device permissions may be (in fact, are, excluding you taking action to
correct it) incorrect for anyone other than root at that point. I've enabled
--user again, if you are trying to run the backend as a user other than root
you should be able to figure it out (yes I'll regret not adding a comment
about that in the actual file).

The first is the function call, the second is the long version of -d for
mythbackend. I thought I saw the same craziness so it isn't just you. I'm
attributing it to the hour which brings me to, it is late, I'm flagging this
thread for follow-up, if Chris Petersen doesn't get to them I'll look at
your tickets tomorrow.
