I just noticed that there were two libmythtv packages installed on my system, one that said it was libmythtv 0.22, but its
version number was 0.23, and one that said it was version 0.23, but its version number was 0.24.
I uninstalled the one claiming to be 0.22, and now the fonts used in the gui are much bigger and fit better in the theme, but
the problem with channel scan remains.
