The mythbackend startup script that came bundled with the mythtv source tarball requires a lot of editing to make it work on my SuSE linux 10.1 x86-64. Hence I used the backend startup script from the RPM package mythtv-backend-****.rpm available from packman.links2linux.org. I did a slight modification to the script and now it worked on my box.

I have attached the script which will work on SuSE linux 10.1.

I don't know about 0.19-fixes but this should work in SVN head.
Maybe you installed the new libraries in a different place than
the original? Say /usr/local/lib rather than /usr/lib ?

In programs/mythtv-setup/backendsettings.cpp we use the chanlists
array to fill the combobox.

BTW we would be interested in a patch against SVN head that adds
singapore's frequency list.
