Hi there,

I am runniung the mythfrontend as specified user "mythtv".
After some time, the ".xsession-errors" file in the home of the user grows 
until it fills up the whole home partition.
The only thing to stop it is to quit mythfrontend, delete the file and restart 
mythfrontend. Then it work for some days without filling up the file with 

But I forget to store a part of the error log, I had no space left for it :-(

Hopefully someone have me a hint.
