I'm not really concerned about it but if you're interested here's a
snippet of my backend log at the start of a recording:

I believe mythbackend is running with default verbosity.

# ps -ef | grep mythbackend
root      1712     1  5 10:19 ?        00:03:26
/usr/local/bin/mythbackend --daemon --nodblog --logfile
/var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log --pidfile /var/run/mythbackend.pid

I put the --nodblog option it to try and remove the mythdbcon.cpp
messages.  I'm guessing that these are diagnostic messages temporarily
added to trunk?
