Hmm. Sorry I can't be of much more help there. I did do some digging
about the session management error. From what I've found it seems to be
a KDE/Qt-related error. That's just a guess on my part based on what I
found in trying to google that error.

Hopefully it'll at least get you going in the right direction.

You can try running an strace on it to see if that gives any clues. The
init script uses start-stop-daemon to launch the backend, but the actual
back-end command is (by default)

/usr/bin/mythbackend --daemon --logfile /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log
--pidfile /var/run/mythtv/mythbackend.pid

Make sure you have strace installed and then try running the above
prefixed with strace as root to see if that gives you any ideas.
