I'm seeing that on my secondary frontend, which is my main desktop computer. 
On that system, I run MythTV in a window rather than full-screen, so I'd 
tentatively assumed the problem had something to do with that fact, but I 
could well be wrong in that assumption. There are many other differences 
between the two systems (the desktop system runs 64-bit Gentoo on an AMD 
Athlon 64; the MythTV system runs 32-bit Ubuntu on an Intel Celeron-D, etc.). 
I've never seen the problem on my main frontend/backend system, except when 
changing video resolutions or font sizes in the frontend, when the scaling 
message is to be expected.
