[mythtv-users] Segmentation fault with mythfrontend

When I start mythfrontend it gets to the initial blue background then
fails with a segmentation fault (see copy of output at the end of this
message). btw: there are no files in /var/log/mythtv to help.
Details of system:
Mandriva 2005LE on AMD sempron 2.2 GHz
No TV card yet (I am just wanting to try the software out for other
media sources, then I will buy a card later)
I had v .15.1 installed, setup mysql and mythtv (put in a non-existent
DVB card in the config), started the backend, and was able to get to the
initial screen of mythfrontend and navigate around OK.
Then I downloaded the .18.1 rpms from http://rpm.nyvalls.se/10.2/RPMS/
and installed them. urpmi removed the older rpms and also wanted
various libraries etc that I didn't have. I located them, and
eventually all the rpms installed OK. It seemed to be OK with the
existing mysql database, so I ran mythtv-setup again. The only thing
that seemed to go wrong here was that it reported it could not get
program information from my provider. Then I ran mythbackend, followed
by mythfrontend and the following resulted.
