In runMenu(), the plugin does:


I don't think the application is locked coming into this code.  In 
constrast, mythfrontend seems to call lock(), then unlock(), then 
exec's the GUI stuff.   The unlock, do something, lock pattern is used 
in other places for a different purpose, so maybe this is just an 
incorrect use of copy-and-paste, and the runMenu() should instead be:


in which case the final unlock that I added would not be necessary.  
I'm not a Qt expert, but this change works for me and makes more sense.
