OK, so you can run it now with no warnings/errors displayed but then
you get the segfault when it does the getshm?

Can you try running mythfrontend and setting the NO_SHM
environment variable like I had you try when you first mentioned the
problem?  That will bypass the shared memory code but should still
display the video.  I'm curious whether this works or if there is
still an underlying problem with the window creation.
