[mythtv-users] Connection problem

I've setup MythTV (version 0.16) on a Debian box (using the unofficial 
apt package), and configured the backend. I've run mythfilldatabase 
(successfully) and started the backend from the /etc/init.d script (no 
errors were reported to the log). When I try to connect to the backend 
however, nothing seems to happen. Connecting using mythfrontend gives 
the following error:
Unexpected response to MYTH_PROTO_VERSION:

I tried to access the backend using mythweb, and got a very similar error:
*User Notice* at /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/includes/mythbackend.php, 
line 132:
Unexpected response to MYTH_PROTO_VERSION 'MYTH_PROTO_VERSION 13':

 From these errors, it seems that the backend is not responding when a 
frontend connects to it...

Has anyone else run into a problem like this? How did you solve it?
