Same deal for the other programs. Slightly related to #6816. I think MythContext::ConnectCommandSocket?() is being called with GUI being set when it shouldn't

This seems to fix it:

+            server, port, ann, &proto_mismatch, d->m_gui);
     if (!d->serverSock)

but I should check if there are any other erroneous invocations of ConnectCommandSocket?()

Does this still occur? I can't reproduce it here against head

Indeed, quick test reveals I cannot either. I'm not sure what has changed though, so will do some more testing, and probably commit the change to fixes.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [23229]) Work around crash when slave backend tries to connect to broken master backend, caused by it trying to create a GUI popup. Not a fault in trunk. May also be a fault in preview generation, but I wasn't able to test. Closes #7437
