[mythtv-users] X Bad_alloc Error

I'm experiencing an error which I cannot figure out.
This is a Via SP13000 motherboard, running Fedora 4 on 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4 
with mythtv svn 8205. I have xorg.conf set for 800x600 with 16 bit 
depth. These settings are down from 1280x1024x16 which was what I had 
set before things went bad.
Note that there is not output, yet, to TV.. this is only monitor output.
I am at a loss to understand what is causing this..
Help  gratefully accepted...

Here is the error reported by mythfrontend. Mythbackend is no more useful.
