I also experience this problem - warning the backend is still running
and hanging on the if you have added channels run mythfilldatabase
message after exiting.

If I

sudo service mythtv-backend stop

before clicking the Applications System Myth Backend Setup icon it
works as expected.

Using Mythbuntu 12.04 64 bit 0.26fixes
