Yes, I do.

Maybe it should but I'm not sure that it does.

I've noticed that if I start mythfrontend, and then I use my mouse to 
switch to another program, then I lose the ability to navigate through 
menus in mythfrontend with the arrow keys on my remote. Although I can 
still do some buttons, like the "back" button to escape out of screens.

This would be ideal, but I don't know anything about the language of the 
script, so I'm unable to create debugging output on my own.
