Well, I got it working, but I can't really explain it.  I just reran
the 0.16 upgrade via the instructions on Jarod's site.  This time it
said it was adding the MythPhone module and updating the MythTV Suite.
 Since I did that the backend has been stable.  Like I said, I can't
explain why that fixed the problem, but it works now.
