[mythtv-users] Can't select items in frontend menus

I'm running TWM with qt 3.3.3.  Does TWM manage the popups or does qt?  
I just re-emerged qt and checked out a fresh copy of mythtv from cvs, 
compiled, and installed.  Still having problems with the menus.  I've 
tried running the frontend with 'debug all' but I don't see anything 
that looks relevant.  Any suggestions?
