My problem is just the Goom visualization in MythMusic, and I was wondering if anyone else on Fedora 11, with Myth .21, an FX5200 video card, and a newer kernel that fixed a LIRC bug.  When I installed F11, I used a backup mythconverg db from another system, which had Goom setup as the only MythMusic Visualization.  I don't know if this issue is the same one you have, but in MythMusic setup, click in a few screens and you will see an edit visualizations button, put blank in as the only visualization and see if your problem is fixed.  I found this out by tweaking every setting until MythMusic finally worked without a seg fault.  

Actually I didn't even know what MythBrowser is, until I just Googled it (on another computer of course).  I guess I would have known what it was if it was called MythInternetExplorer ;)
