I tried messing around with a few debug options to see if I could get
any more information. What seems to make everything correct again
probably isn't a permanent solution, but at least it is something.

If I start the frontend with "env NO_XV=1 mythfrontend" then the
picture size is correct again. I'm not sure if that means xv isn't
working right or if something isn't getting detected properly.

Any ideas anyone?
