mythbackend hangs with error "MainServer: Unknown socket closing MythSocket"

This error seems to occur every few months. It will also take down XBMC To fix it:
  1. kill -9 xbmc 
  2. sudo service mythbackend stop
  3. sudo service mysql stop
  4. ps ax|grep mythbackend
  5. kill -9 all mythbackend instances found
  6. sudo service mysql start
  7. sudo service mythbackend start
Finally restart XBMC and rock on!
