As I suspected.  The packaged version installed with apt-get, gets
installed under /usr.  By default, versions of myth you compile
yourself (0.19 or latest svn), get installed to /usr/local.

When you run /usr/bin/mythfrontend, the dynamic linker is linking to
the wrong version of libmyth.  Depending on what exactly you have got
installed in /usr/local/lib, the results of this are going to be

To get the packaged version running, either move the contents of
/usr/local/lib out of the way, or remove any reference to
/usr/local/lib from /etc/ld.so.conf and run ldconfig.

Rerun the ldd command and note the difference.
