[mythtv-users] "Session Management Error: could not open network socket"

Everything seems to run fine but I notice this error on the first line
of my console when running mythfrontend.

Specifically, I haven't noticed any issues with connecting to the
backend either for playing live tv or for accessing recordings.

Could this be related to my ip settings which I set to
localhost/ since the BE/FE are on the same machine and since
this seems to minimize firewall issues for me since everything happens
on the localhost and I don't have to open the firewall to allow
communication between BE and FE.

Specifically, in 'mythtvsetup', I have:
		Local Backend: IP address:
		Master Backend: IP address:
and in 'mythfrontend' settings, I have:
	    Host name: localhost
