I'm going to take a stab in the dark.  Are you running FC4?  Even if you
aren't depending on the version and patches in the linux kernel that you
have, this will happen.  I created a patch for libcdaudio (which is the
most likely culprit for the crash) and I believe that Axel was going to
recreate RPMs for it.  If you are not running Fedora, look in the
archives for a subject something like "FC4 cd ripping" and you should
find my patch.

You play a CD by going into music selection and selecting the checkbox
for the CD device.  There are multiple ways to do this - probably
easiest is to go into mythmusic, play music, and then hit "3" to change
your song selection.  Coincidentally, if you're having the problem
mentioned above as far as libcdaudio crashing your frontend, it's going
to crash here too until you get libcdaudio patched.
