Just a guess, based on my use of both, myth*.real is the application and 
myth* points to the application with some bells and whistles added.

For instance, mythtv-setup forces one to stop the backend. 
mythtv-setup.real only warns of possible issues with running it while 
the backend is up.

I haven't noticed any difference running mythfrontend.real vs 
mythfrontend, or backend vs backend.real.
Up until this week it's all been on 0.21 so maybe I'll find different 
things now that I'm on 0.23.
