Mac OS X frontend uses wrong IP addr. for remote backend

The Mac OS X frontend doesn't work with a remote backend. The problem is that some part of the system is not using the user-supplied IP address for the backend. Here's a transcript of the console output:

2007-07-29 14:12:19.202 New DB connection, total: 1
2007-07-29 14:12:19.213 Connected to database 'mythconverg' at host:
2007-07-29 14:12:19.216 Total desktop dim: 1440x900, with 1 screen[s].
2007-07-29 14:12:19.224 Running in a window
2007-07-29 14:12:19.226 Using screen 0, 1440x874 at 0,22
2007-07-29 14:12:19.278 Current Schema Version: 1160
2007-07-29 14:13:31.857 Connecting to backend server: (try 1 of 5)
2007-07-29 14:13:31.857 Connection timed out.          
			You probably should modify the Master Server 
			settings in the setup program and set the    
			proper IP address.

I have set the proper IP address in Setup, as you can see by the successful first connection to the database. Later, however, some component tries to use as the backend address and fails. You can replicate this by trying to watch live TV, which will trigger the failure.

I'm using the 20070728 Intel build of 0.20-fixes found at

I reported this: n8gray .at. caltech .dot. edu

I don't know why trac insisted on making me anonymous.

Please disregard this ticket. My backend system was misconfigured. Sorry for the noise.
