My guess would be that you've got mythfrontend setuid root (I don't know how
old your previous version of myth is) and the new thread is the thread owned
by root.

The HOWTO mentions this, http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-5.html
under Enabling real-time scheduling of the display thread, note " Making
this change will affect your ability to run mythfrontend within gdb for
debugging purposes. If you need to debug, you will need to run as root."

If this is not your problem, ignore me :)
