These errors are not being thrown by the frontend?  Here are the complete
log entries

Also,I checked the init.d script that starts the backend and there was a
HOME variable being set.  I have not made any changes to this.

start() {
        [ -z "${MYTH_VERBOSE}"  ] && MYTH_VERBOSE="general"
    [ -z "${MYTH_LOGLEVEL}" ] && MYTH_LOGLEVEL="info"

        export HOME=/etc/mythtv

        #fixes for bug #101308
        unset DISPLAY
        unset SESSION_MANAGER

        # Work around any strange permissions that may be on these files.
        chown -R mythtv /var/log/mythtv/
        chown -R mythtv /etc/mythtv/
        rm -rf /etc/mythtv/.qt

I am running fixes/0.25 [v0.25-79-g2970fe9]
