When I turn on Listen on All IP Addresses, is listed among 
the set of IP addresses. I can then choose it as my primary IP. is saved if I choose Save and Exit. Good. Then, if I turn 
off Listen on All IP Addresses, is replaced with, 
thus recreating my original issue.

Just now I booted Linux with IPv6 enabled. The mythtv-setup issue with 
the back end host address is the same: is my only option if I 
turn off Listen on All IP Addresses.

Looks like I'm stuck with listening on all IPs...
