Well, still not sure what the actual problem is, but I think I found a fix. 
Unfortunately I can't try it just yet as I decided to completely wipe the mythtv
install and start fresh with a new CVS install.  Anyways, I was messing around
with freevo to see if it was a problem with the pvr software or something else,
and it seemed to have the same problem.  Then I ran xawtv from the command line,
same problem!  Previously I had only been using xawtv from the desktop link.

Well some more digging, and it seems the xawtv desktop icon uses /dev/v4l/video0
while just typing xawtv in the commandline defaults to /dev/video0.  I do feel
kinda silly for not noticing this earlier, but then again why would it even make
a difference?  Hopefully the new CVS version works too so I can try this
