I think the difference here is that if the entire machine "dies" as in,
reboots, it will autologin and go directly into mythfrontend when it starts,
but if the mythfronend application dies, and your left looking at your
desktop, the mythbuntu will not automatically launch a new instance of
mythfrontend, where the Gentoo setup would.  Do I have that right?
