OK, this is one of those, 'It used to work things'
I had mysql problems and rebuilt the database (which is to say, I started from 
scratch), and now I can run mythfrontend on the machine where mythbackend runs,
I can run it on my normal 'main machine',
But I CANT run it on the diskless host that is on a separate ethernet  (from 
backend) and will go in by my TV.  THIS USED TO WORK!

I have tried to get a core dump, but the Linux doesnt seem to want to give me 
even tho I have set the core dump size to unlimited.

Here are the messages I get from mythfrontend before it dies:

If this were to work (on the other machines), the next line would be

So, any ideas on what is wrong?
Any idea on how to get this thing to drop a core dump (if that would be 

Im in my usual state of puzzlement about mythtv and not sure what to try next
(the frontend machine uses the SAME binaries as the backend machine, so there
is no problem there).
