Bug Description

On booting my mediatomb main process is terminating and respawning very often until it stops with

 init: mediatomb respawning too fast, stopped

instead it breaks.

This is happening when upstart is attempting to start the process during boot, there's a workaround.

"sudo nano /etc/init/mediatomb.conf"

Change the start stops to the following:

start on started apache2
stop on stopped apache2
respawn

If you aren't using apache2 as your webserver, replace apache2 with whatever service you are using.
