I think I know what's wrong - the combined BE/FE uses a wide theme so
the mythtv-setup runs in 16:9 resolution. When called from 4:3 X server
the geometry must be set to 16:9. With --geometry 1067x600 all buttons
are visible and all help texts fit in the help windows :-)

This was my fault - there was the "storagegroup" table left from
previous upgrade trial and the 1171 db upgrade failed with duplicate key
because the table was not empty...
