Stuart, Kevin,

I apologize for the confusion.  I believe you when you say I've missed 
something - but I don't know what...  I did compile it with debug turned 
on as best I can tell.

 From the original message:

$ mythfrontend --version
Library API version: 0.19.20060121-2
Source code version: Unknown
Options compiled in:
linux debug using_xvmcw using_v4l using_oss using_alsa using_ivtv 
using_lirc using_x11 using_xv using_xrandr using_xvmc using_xvmc_vld 
using_opengl_vsync using_frontend using_backend

As you can see, the debug option is compiled in.

This is a gentoo ebuild emerge with 'debug' in the USE flags.  Here is a 
snippit from the emerge:
