If anyone else out there is needing to override the UI Painter selection 
with current master to force use of the Qt painter, please send logs of 
mythfrontend startup without the override, so it shows it choosing the 
OpenGL painter, and provide a description of why the OpenGL painter 
isn't working.  This way, we can either help you fix brokenness, or if 
the brokenness is systemic (driver/hardware issues), we can detect it 
and not recommend the OpenGL painter.

As 0.25 release is approaching, consider this a "last call" for logs.

Remember that /no one/ should have to use an override to choose the Qt 
painter.  If you are using such an override, something needs to be 
fixed, so please help us do so.  :)
