I'm getting the same crash (FC5 on 686).

How exactly did you rebuild from the source RPM?  I tried the way that
seemed natural to me but it failed:

  $ rpmbuild -bb rpmbuilds/SPECS/mythtv.spec 
  error: line 57: Dependency tokens must begin with alpha-numeric, '_' or '/': BuildRequires: %{_x_includes}/X11/extensions/vldXvMC.h

It sounds as if this is a heisenbug.  Best to compile just the way
Axel does, but install the resulting -debuginfo .rpm too.  This should
let GDB work better.  Maybe valgrind too.
