OK, not as strange as it might seem.
The TV being on or off has nothing to do with it, its mythfrontend being
in the 'Live TV' mode that seems to be the problem.
In fact, the 'TV' in question is the monitor on my MythTV machine
The Montitor itself is on a KVM so I can switch over to it or not, usually
the KVM is sitting on my main machine.

Now someone suggested going back to the Menu.
I havent tried that, Ill have to see if things die there too, interesting question.

But, how mythfrontend can die and take X11 with it is still a question.

And no, I havent set up a log file (when things dont die I can see those
messages in the window I start mythfrontend in, and that has been good
enough to now), but will start up a log and see if that tells me anthing.

Hummmm, two experiments.
