Do you have a mythshutdown process active? Recently I've been having a problem where the first call to mythshutdown hangs and until I kill it mythwelcome is hung. I haven't had a chance to diagnose if this is a myth bug or something specific to my machine. Anyway see if a "killall mythshutdown" unstops mythwelcome like it does for me.

In case I'm on to something: I took a look in the debugger and mythwelcome is stuck in the mythcontext destructor waiting for a semaphone (as I recall) but I don't see why it should be wedged.
