	Hey all... finally getting around to upgrading my 0.19 mythbox to 
0.20.  I've got a 1GHz Athlon with video card:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV31 [GeForce FX 5600] (rev a1)

	Whenever mythtvsetup or mythfrontend *quits*, X crashes.  I 
managed to get the tail end of /var/log/Xlog and this is what it barfs on:

(**) Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
(**) Keyboard0: XkbModel: "pc105"
(**) Option "XkbLayout" "us"
(**) Keyboard0: XkbLayout: "us"
(**) Option "CustomKeycodes" "off"
(**) Keyboard0: CustomKeycodes disabled
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Keyboard0" (type: KEYBOARD)
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Mouse0" (type: MOUSE)
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "NVIDIA Event Handler" (type: 
(II) Mouse0: ps2EnableDataReporting: succeeded

Fatal server error:

	The install is barebones FC5 using atrpms and Jarod's guide.  Is 
this a known issue, or flakiness on my motherboard?

	Oh, and the crash happens whether or not I select Qt or OpenGL in 
the frontend setup.  If I select Qt, it appears to work (other than the 
crashing).  If I select OpenGL, it seems like it's working (i.e. hitting 
ESC gives a "Sure you want to quit" dialog), but all I can see is a black
