Thanks, again, to Mr Meek. To be concise, here are the steps needed to
eliminate double logging to syslog from mythbackend on Fedora 17:
Add the following two lines to /usr/lib/systemd/system/mythbackend.service:
# to supress output to STDOUT, which spams syslog
Then, repeat as necessary every time you update/upgrade MythTV. If
someone has a more persistent solution, I would love to hear it.
