If you are going to run pre-release CVS stuff, you should get the latest
available.  The crash above sounds a bit like a bug which has been fixed in
recent CVS.

Did you install these from source, or are you backporting the Debian
packages from testing/unstable?

MythTV should definitely not be able to crash your machine; you are likely
running into a problem either with X or your kernel.
