Sorry for the late reply.  It turned out that it was just that one video
file that exited me out of MythTV.  I took out the xinerama from the command
line to see what would happen, and it still closed MythTV.

Are you controlling MPlayer with the remote or keyboard? If using the
remote, are you using a button for MPlayer that also controls MythTV?
If you exit MPlayer via the keyboard, does mythfrontend still close?

No. XVID playback is not using MPEG2 XvMC acceleration.

Do you see the same behaviour without the xinerama option?
