Your comment in the ticket of "How are you all starting this thing?" sounds
like a request for support.

mythwelcome starts up properly here on my dev system, so it probably
something with your setup.  You should try following the instructions
for submitting a bug report and get a backtrace of what mythwelcome is
doing when you get this freeze.  Post that to the mailing list before
creating a bug report.  You could also possibly save time by making sure
that you have done a "make distclean" then rerun configure and make
again before doing this just to make sure that you've run "make distclean"
whenever the devs have mentioned to do so in their -commits log.
