AutoStartDaemonProducesNoVideoOutput

Question

I've installed Motion on Ubuntu 14.04 and configured it with my USBcamera (dev/video0). It all works great when I start Motion from the command line (sudo motion). I can view camera output at 10.1.10.10:8081 and I can access the sys admin at port 8080 - all recordings are placed in /home/wayne/motion (set in /etc/motion/motion.conf)

However when automatically start the daemon # set to 'yes' to enable the motion daemon start_motion_daemon=yes then proceed to start recording with sudo /usr/bin/lwp-request http://localhost:8080/0/detection/start > /dev/null I get a blank video screen at 10.1.10.10:8081 and at port 8080 I get a "will not connect" message. I've looked through syslog and see a very long list of Motion trying various configuration that ultimately fail... as if it cannot find the configuration file...
