Did you keep terminating the backend, or was there some system script 
that was doing so?  It appears upstart terminated the first instance of 
the backend.  The problem is that it didn't actually terminate it, it 
terminated some wrapper script (mythtv-backend), which closed 
immediately and left the actual running backend hanging.  With the 
wrapper gone, upstart tried to start a new instance of mythbackend, 
while the old instance was still running and listening on the HTTP 
ports, blocking the new instance from setting up its web server.
