I have the following in mythfrontend's log file, which
are the last lines before the frontend just up and
crashes (leaving the window manager still functioning
sans mythfrontend):

[ and then nothing until reboot ]

I was about to declare victory, having solved another
crash related to ivtv settings, though this one seems
unrelated to that.  It occurred when I selected "Back"
(Escape) to go back to the menu while watching a
pre-recorded program.  Myth had been running roughly
18 hours since the last crash, with medium-high usage.

The sytem logs have no entries that coincide with this
event, just mythfrontend's log.

myth 0.18.1
ivtv 0.4.1 (using xv/yuv driver with x.org 6.8.1)
kernel 2.6.8 (SuSE 9.2)
P4 2.4GHz with 1G RAM

Anyone have any idea what's causing this?  Any
suggestions?  Is this a Mythbug (perhaps fixed in a
later version)?  Should I upgrade the kernel?  Could
this still be ivtv-related?

Thanks for any help!
