If I run it from the command line it works fine.  I'm not 100% sure if 
I'm using KDE or not, but the original script file called 
/usr/share/mythdora/mythfrontend.sh and that used to work (until I 
removed it and upgraded to SVN).  So, I'm going with the assumption that 
I'm using KDE.  The auto-login as the mythtv user still works as 
always.  Also, the permissions on that file are 755 and are owned by 
mythtv.mythtv (user.group).
