 My wife accidentally started mythfrontend from mythwelcome this morning,
 then immediately pressed escape to exit mythfrontend.

 The mythfrontend window closed, but mythwelcome did not repaint.

 ps showed that mythfrontend was still running.

 I'm attaching a backtrace of the running threads.

 After killing the mythfrontend process, mythwelcome repainted its window.

 I was able to reproduce this several times by pressing escape before the
 root mythtv menu appeared.

 Mythfrontend exited normally if escape was pressed after the menu
