I am now able to reproduce this bug consistently.
-> Go to Recordings screen
-> Change the "Group View" on the recordings screen (Do nothing else!)
-> Hit Escape once nothing happens !?
-> Hit Escape again and the Myth QT window goes AWOL.
-> Frontend has to be killed and restarted

If after changing the "Group View" I navigate right to the recordings 
themselves then it doesn't crash for some reason.
