I am not seeing these error messages in my logs, but I am having a seemingly
similar problem.  When watching a recording or something in mythvideo if
I adjust the volume or pause or basically do anything the theme background
is drawn over top of the video.  I have tried various themes(with mythbuntu
theme is does look like a window/door screen, with arclight and graphite
its the actual background image).
