It definitely needs to make sure you have a proper HOME environment 
variable set.  See 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/230925#230925 (and 
the rest of the thread) for way too much information.

Might also want to look at some of the start scripts in the contrib 
directory for "motivation".  Having those and Ubuntu's start scripts for 
other apps as references, you could probably create your own real start
