I used to use Debian directly before I converted to KnoppMyth. One thing I really liked was having the frontend log file so I could figure out what the frontend was doing (when necessary). Here's how I set-up my R5A30 system:

1. su to root
2. edit /usr/local/bin/KnoppMyth-run
3. Go to line 15
Code:
exec mythfrontend

4. Change line 15 to this:
Code:
exec mythfrontend -l /var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log


For those concerned about gigantic log files, do the following (as root):
1. cp /etc/logrotate.d/mythtv-backend /etc/logrotate.d/mythtv-frontend
2. edit /etc/logrotate.d/mythtv-frontend
3. Goto line 1
Code:
/var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log {

4. Change line to this:
Code:
/var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log {

The same stuff usually ens up in your /home/mythtv/.xsession-errors log. See the log file page on the wiki for more: http://www.knoppmythwiki.org/index.php?page=CheckingLogFiles

I agree. However, my technique will not re-start the log file when the user logs-in (after a reboot). Probably depends on your needs.
