I had this exact same problem with my backend and I simply changed my init
script around a bit to look like this, try it out for yourself:

depend() {
        need net
        use mysql

start() {
        [[ -z "${MYTH_VERBOSE}" ]] && MYTH_VERBOSE="none"


        #fixes for bug #101308
        unset DISPLAY
        unset SESSION_MANAGER

        # Work around any strange permissions that may be on these files.
        chown -R mythtv /var/log/mythtv/
#       chown -R mythtv /etc/mythtv/

        ebegin "Starting MythTV Backend"
#         /usr/bin/mythbackend -l /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log -p
/var/run/mythbackend.pid -v important,general,record -d
        /usr/local/bin/mythbackend -l /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log -p
/var/run/mythbackend.pid -v important,general,record -d
        eend $?

stop () {
        ebegin "Stopping MythTV Backend"
        start-stop-daemon --stop --pidfile=/var/run/mythbackend.pid
        eend $?
