Oddly enough, ps -aux shows the upscript running as root.
root 18020 0.5 0.6 287324 39032 ? D 11:45 0:00
/usr/bin/mythbackend --logfile /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log
but it cannot access the database. Why would running it directly from a
root terminal work, but the upstart script running as root not work? What
happened with .23 that may have changed this and what did it change?
