I haven't manually installed any themes and according to yum this is all 
I have installed:

bash-4.1# yum list installed *themes*
Installed Packages
mythtv-themes.i686                    0.24.1-277.el6  @atrpms

I know there are a ton of people using Axel's myth packages.  Does 
everyone using his packages have broken themes?

That being said, this really doesn't look like a problem of missing 
theme files to me anyway.  For example, the first references I see to 
"title_tv.png" are these:

{st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=6216, ...}) = 0
{st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=4860, ...}) = 0
{st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=4860, ...}) = 0

...and all those files do exist.  What is missing here?  The very next 
thing it does is to try to open a file that is not in either of those 
locations and probably would never exist:

open("title/title_tv.png", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT 
(No such file or directory)

What about the theme might be telling it to do that?  Where should I 
look to figure this out?
