When I first tried it I hadn't done such a thorough cleanup, but last night,
as mentioned in my original email, I removed *everything* before
- Removed all myth* and libmyth* packages again.
- Groupremoved Xorg
- Removed a few other misc xorg and font packages that remained
- Cleaned out the /etc/X11, /use/share/mythtv, /usr/lib64/mythtv directories
(and $HOME/.mythtv even though I didn't mention it before)
- Restart
- Reinstalled Xorg and MythTV 0.23
- Removed qt4, qt4-mysql (since atrpms installed qt44 versions)

If I do have a broken theme, it wasn't something left behind from the
previous install unless I missed some other directory. At present the only
directory containing themes I have is /usr/share/mythtv/themes.   Just for
kicks I've removed myththemes and mythtv-themes (why are there two by the
way?), deleted the /usr/share/mythtv/themes directory and reinstalled both
packages again.  No dice.
