[mythtv-users] Mythfrontend seg faulting on initial run

I've read this list extensively to get a FC3 x86_64
box up and running. 
Now I've tried to do a fresh install on the same box
with FC4 x86_64. 
Everything goes fine but running mythfrontend intially
give me this output.

Segmentation fault

It's weird.  If I run mythfrontend from the .mythtv
directory I get the 
above text.  If I run it from any other directory the
seg fault will 
occur after the "Inserting MythDVD intial database
information." line.

Also, I happen to notice there is a message on the
dmesg output about 
mythfrontend causing a "general protection rip:"

This was all done directly from a fresh install using
Jarod's guide.

Does anyone know what could be causing this or the
fix? I've tried 
reinstalling several times to no avail. I can't find
any similar errors 
via google or a search of this list.

System specs are: FC4 x86_64, AMD64 3000 and 6600GT
Nvidia. I'm using 
the Nvidia drivers using Nvidia installer.  Xine works
correctly and I 
can watch live tv with mythtv by running "mythtv"
directly at the 
command prompt.

Thank for any help,
