[mythtv-users] Getting Connection refused when trying to telnet to port 6546

I am running a recently compiled version of mythtv.  The file version is 

I have a mythpowerbutton.pl script that I have used for years to shut 
down the frontend and then put the monitor to sleep.  Within the last 
few days this script stopped working and what I have found is that I can 
not telnet to port 6546 and the frontend log has the following error: 
"NetworkControl failed to bind to port 6546"

Normally when I see this it means that the bit in the database got 
flipped but when looking in the database and in the setup port 6546 is 
set to enabled.  I then did a netstat to see if anything was using port 
6546 and nothing is using that port.

Any ideas on what I should look at next?

I should mention that I am using Fedora 12.  I know it is an old one but 
I have not been able to upgrade it yet.
