[mythtv-users] [0.23] jobs not running on slave backends anymore

I recently upgraded my backends from 0.22 to 0.23 and since then, no jobs (mythcommflag and user jobs) are executed on my slave backend like they used to before. The master backend was Ubuntu 9.10 with autobuilds enabled, the slave was 9.04 with autobuilds. First I upgraded MythTV on the master and then did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 with MythTV 0.23 on the slave. After everything seemed to work fine (haven't tested the jobs though) I did a distribution update to 10.04 on the master too.

I export the whole /var/lib/mythtv folder on the master and mount it on the slave on the same position. So all files are exactly the same to the backends. Just to confirm that I didn't overlook any settings, here they are for both backends:

maximum simultaneous jobs on this backend: 1
job queue check frequency (in seconds):    60
job queue start time:                      00:00
job queue end time:                        23:59
allow advert detection jobs:               [x]
allow transcoding jobs:                    [x]
allow user job 1:                          [x]
allow user job 2:                          [x]
allow user job 3:                          [x]
allow user job 4:                          [x]
run jobs only on original recording backend: [ ]

It also doesn't matter whether I schedule the job from the backend or Mythweb. Also mythbackend.log doesn't show anything wrong related to scheduled jobs. The only odd things in the log are

(these haven't been there earlier and might be unrelated)
