[mythtv-users] BE Errors

The backend starts automatically on my system, then I generated the log
with "mythbackend -v all" . Could that have started the second instance?
Or could the second command "mythbackend -v all | pastebinit" while the
first terminal was still open have caused it? (usually its something I've
just done that causes me the most grief)
