Don't know. In your startup script (that HP-mini referred to in another post)
you could add --syslog none. The ps you ran, and had --logpath in it explains
why you see logs under /var/log/mythtv/program.timestamp.pid.log. It doesn't
explain the syslog messages unless your distribution truncated the output of
the ps command I suggested. You could try: ps f -eo user,args|grep myth|grep -v grep
to see if there's more.

The default to none was added in commit e4243c6 in July 2011. You're running on
a commit that was released in July of 2012, so you shouldn't have to do that.
