I'm almost there. Unfortunately, I don't have the problem in that link.
Rather, this is the failure I am seeing:

2011-04-21 14:42:07.231 MythCoreContext: Connecting to backend server: (try 1 of 1)
2011-04-21 14:42:14.236 MythSocket(7f519800fdf0:59): readStringList:
Error, timed out after 7000 ms.
2011-04-21 14:42:14.236 Protocol version check failure.
			The response to MYTH_PROTO_VERSION was empty.
			This happens when the backend is too busy to respond,
			or has deadlocked in due to bugs or hardware failure.

I've had to go back and retest one of the versions. I think there's
another way to trigger the problem and I need to test that theory.
