Some more info. The frontend crashes right when I start it up. I see
the messages that Myth is loading and scaling the theme images, but
then it quickly dies. Here are the errors:

One thing to note is that I did get my frontend working when I first
upgraded to 0.20.2. With that build I ended up setting my frontend
gui's resolution to 800x600. I only started seeing the seg fault
after rebooting the machine. Could this be the problem? Is there
some way to reset the frontend gui to the default settings without
going through the gui?
