On RPM Fusion we just retired the mythtv-themes package since they are
no longer shipped upstream. You're expected to use the built-in
downloader now. Now we just ship mythtv-base-themes which just has
Terra Mythcenter, and Mythcenter-wide (I think). You could try
removing the package to see if it helps... I believe several of the
themes have been updated to use mythui features. It could be that the
ones you have installed are too old and are causing problems...
