[mythtv-users] MySQL issues on Mac OS frontend (other clients work fine)

I currently run a Mythbuntu server that was recently upgraded to 16.04 and 
Mythtv 0.28 (from 14.04 / 0.27).

I am able to run Mythfrontend 0.28 fine from an Ubuntu machine, but 
whenever I try to run the frontend from my mac mini, it hangs. 

Apparently it is having trouble with MySQL.  With the Mac OS client, the 
MySQL logs show that connections are being aborted.  Sometimes complaining 
about communication packets.  I have a solid ethernet network connection 
and am able to verify I can connect to all ports from the Mac.

Before I go down the path of trying to post links to my log files, is 
there something obvious I should be doing?  Also, assuming you will want 
to see logs, what is the most accepted way to present these?

BTW, I can force the client to "work" for a bit by selecting a show to 
watch and once the frontend hangs with the spinning wheel, if I restart 
the MySQL service on the backend it starts to play fine.  It obviously is 
talking to the database because it does show me my recorded shows.
