If that is indeed what really fixed your system, then there is
probably a problem/bug in one of the visualizations. There is a UI for
choosing your visualizations in the mythfrontend GUI for mythmusic
(not much of a "UI"; you have to type in the visualization names).

If you want to track down your problem you ought to be able to choose
them one by one and see which one crashes your system.
