[mythtv-users] Mythfrontend loses focus after mplayer spawn under kde

Hi there,

I have my nvidia tv-out configured to be on X screen 1, (ie, 
DISPLAY=localhost:0.1) and i can run mythfrontend just great on that.  I 
have KDE running on the system, and when i boot up i get a KDE desktop 
both on my monitor and on my TV.

When i run mythfrontend (and control it with lirc - i'm proud to have 
gotten that working!) and come back from playing a movie with mplayer, 
it loses focus and i can see the KDE toolbar over top of the 
mythfrontend screen.   I can no longer control mythfrontend.

I googled around a bit and found that i had to have KDE "click to focus" 
enabled.  This is already enabled on my system, though.


Alternatively, how can i run KDE only on X Screen 0?  Or how can i run a 
different window manager on X Screen 1?
