[mythtv] Graphical Setup

Aha, I figured it out, apparently. I changed a hundred things, and now it
works. ;)

I think the problem was that it was using some old settings that I had
forgotten I'd copied to ~/.mythtv. Removing most of the stuff in there (and
doing yet another complete recompile) seems to have fixed the problem.

Now all that's left is to work out my system stability problems. Which I know
are not Myth's fault... I suspect either the sound driver (ALSA, SB Live) or
bttv driver are buggy... the OOPSes look like memory corruption, or maybe a
race condition. Yay. :/

Thanks for the help with my "setup" problem. :)
