Change the script you're using to start your X session or whatever
(~/.Xsession or ~/.xinitrc or ...) and that's also starting mythfrontend
so that it waits on the window manager, not on mythfrontend.  The
behavior isn't caused by Myth or by any Myth settings.  It's just that X
is being told to run until mythfrontend finishes.
