After a recent update of 0.23-fixes (don't know the original rev, but the
new one is r25154) I lost the ability to shutdown my remote,  diskless
frontend with the system exit key.  It's set to "esc", and if I hit "esc"
from the main menu I do get the 3-item dialog box (Are you sure you want to
exit? No, Yes, Yes and Shutdown).

"No" indeed cancels, and "Yes" indeed closes mythfrontend.  "Yes and
Shutdown does" nothing (neither exits mythfrontend nor shuts down the

Any hints?  I haven't changed any settings so I'm guessing something changed
underneath me when i updated the myth packages.  I'm certain I'm not
providing enough information, but I honestly don't know what to provide that
would be relevant.  Here's the full version information:

mythfrontend --version
xprop:  unable to open display ''

Is there a database setting saying what should happen with the "Yes and
shutdown" exit is selected?  I see a few options for server shutdown scripts
etc, but their descriptions (and names) suggest that they're for shutting
down/waking up remote backends and not frontends.  I'm happy to be told
otherwise though ;)
