I'm glad someone else is seeing this - I thought I was going mad!

I did try updating to svn shortly after Isaac committed my patch and
did see the problem you described. Unfortunately I use a DVB card
on my system and the recent changes to the DVB stuff made by system
freeze when changing channel so I had to revert back to a previous build.

Because no one reported a problem with the LCD stuff I thought it must
be a local problem with a bad merge or the DVB stuff causing problems.

I'm actually in the process of  making some big changes to the way the LCD
stuff works. In the mean time could you try this change:

change line 2316 in libmyth/themedmenu.cpp
