[mythtv-users] Help with mythfrontend segfault

I am running Myth 0.19 from atrpms, LCDdproc 0.5.0 (which I've
modified to report as 0.5.0dev), and lirc from CVS with an imon VFD.
System is FC5 x86_64 with 2.6.16-1.2133_FC5.

Mythfrontend segfaults, but mythlcdserver launches and runs well. If I
use mythweb, I can schedule a show to record and mythlcdserver
displays the recording status on the VFD. Time and heartbeat are also

I've been waking up at night to try to fix this, because it's making
me unable to sleep. Yes, I am slightly obsessive :). Does anyone have
any suggestions? Would applying the patch against mythlcdserver
instead of LCDproc make a difference?

Here's my mythfrontend startup
