No, not normal and not needed.  Short of a reboot, try shutting down
mythbackend and checking again (service mythbackend stop if you've
configured it that way).  If they persist, try killall mythbackend.

Backend yes, front end no.  Best you can do for front end is a minimal
window manager, such as blackbox, ratpoison, or enlightenment.
