Can you turn on all logging for mythfrontend? Use a command line like

    /usr/bin/mythfrontend -l /var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log -v

Then see what the last 10-20 lines in mythfrontend.log are - this may
give a good clue as to what section of code the hang is in.

For example, in my case with the udevinfo problem, my last lines were

2009-07-03 16:32:22.019 Creating MediaMonitor, SendEvents=true
2009-07-03 16:32:22.019 IgnoreDevices=
2009-07-03 16:32:22.023 MediaMonitorUnix::GetCDROMBlockDevices() returning sr0

which made me look into the MediaMonitor stuff.
