 The default config doesn't work for me, starting and stopping to get a 
 template is not intuitive.

 I don't understand; why would it write to that file if it already exists 
 (see above)?

 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
