I don't know exactly what this implies, but when I run xvinfo, it
tells me the maximum XvImage size is 2048x2048.

Anyhow, I manage to work around the problem by writing a start-up
script for mythfrontend and don't use xv.

#! /bin/bash

export NO_XV=1
sudo nice -n -2 mythfrontend

It's not perfect, but at least watchable.
