[mythtv-users] Getting "WARNING: The backend is currently running" after supposedly quitting the backend

I've recently installed Mythbuntu 12.04 with MythTV 0.25 on an AMD 64 PC.
There's tiny bit of weirdness with MythTV Backend Setup:

Applications -> System -> MythTV Backend Setup

Dialog box appears:

"Mythbackend must be closed before continuing. Is it OK to close any
currently running mythbackend processes?"

I click "Yes".

Dialog for password: I enter password and click OK.

The program launches and immediately displays an error dialog:

    WARNING: The backend is currently running.

    Changing existing card inputs, deleting anything, or scanning for
channels may not work.

    Recording status: None.

    Stop backend and continue

I select "Stop backend and continue".

Do whatever and exit MythTV Backend Setup.

Dialog box: "Please enter your current login password to start

I do this and everything seems to have worked OK. A small bug here?
