[mythtv-users] 'key' command over telnet crashes mythfrontend

Hi. I still haven't figured out why sending a command to mythfrontend makes it
crash. I ran it with stdout going into an ssh session so I could see any
messages printed. It said "listening on 6546" then when I connected it
acknowledged my connection. After sending "key down", it simply crashed
("Segmentation Fault"). Upon further exploration, I discovered that the other
commands work--it is just the 'key' commands that make mythfrontend crash.
How does 'key' work? Many synthetic keypress programs use the XTEST X server
extension, is this the case here? Or does it hook into some internal Myth
API? I am running modular X.org (version 7.0) from Debian experimental and I
compiled MythTV with GCC 4.0. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

And now for something completely different.
