Yes, perhaps your network is not up when mythfrontend starts and it
can't find the backend? I THINK this presents in a similar way.

Alternatively has one of those files got a small misspelling and the
wrong permissions to let <user> change it?

And are you sure it is <user> that is running mythfrontend and not
<anotheruser> ?

(LOL I was just looking at your similar thread on mythbuntu forums).
