I use Mythbuntu's build and they don't.

In Mythbuntu's build the program is launched (as mentioned in my
original post) with:

/usr/bin/mythmetadatalookup -j 67460 --verbose general,system --loglevel info --quiet --syslog local7

It seems it's the "--quiet" that is making mythmetadatalookup suppress
the logging detail that I want to see.

I guess I could make /usr/bin/mythmetadatalookup a wrapper around the
real command that removes the --quiet from the argument list.

I was just looking for a more "above board" way of doing that.
