I appreciate your advice.  You were right on the money.  When
mythbackend is running, my error goes away.  I originally thought the
mysql database was the backend for some reason, but it's really just
used by the backend.

What's the difference between /usr/bin/mythfrontend, and
/usr/bin/mythtv?  They seem to do the same thing, but neither of them
is an alias.
