[mythtv-users] 'service mythbackend start' fails on slave backend

I am trying to setup a slave backend and I have narrowed my problem down 
to this. When I start mythbackend from a command line like 
'/etc/init.d/mythbackend start', mythbackend starts up and connects to 
the database just fine. However, when I use the 'service' command, ie, 
'service mythbackend start', mythbackend fails to connect to the 
database on the master backend. Apparently when I use the 'service' 
command, I do not get the environment required. I will keep on trying to 
track this down. While I do, has anyone else encountered this and 
figured out a solution? I am running Fedora 7 on the slave backend.
