The default config doesn't work for me, starting and stopping to get a

I don't understand; why would it write to that file if it already exists

That's a pretty poor workaround Matthias, you should still be able to
override it with mediatomb_flags (which is not possible today unless you
edit the rc.d script by hand).
FYI, the Ubuntu package for mediatomb-daemon has the following features:
* Installs a default config file to /etc/mediatomb/config.xml
* Installs a startup script to /etc/init.d/mediatomb
* Startup script config in /etc/default/mediatomb, defaults to
mediatomb/mediatomb for the user and group and can be changed.
* Startup script passes -c /etc/mediatomb/config.xml to the mediatomb
