Thanks for the suggestions Phill (and others), but no, I've looked
everywhere that I can think of, as well as everywhere that has been
suggested. I give up. I'll just have to shut down one instance of
mythfrontend after using the power-button script I guess.
While looking for an answer to a different issue, I came across a post
that mentioned something similiar to this. I had to open the control
center, go into kde settings, and change a feature that remembered the
session state from your last login. I thought that this would do it,
but no luck. It did fix the issue with the two frontends starting at
boot, but not when using the power button on the remote.
