This is my experience too; if mythfrontend is running when the
computer suspends, all sorts of things can go wrong when it resumes.

I have the power button on my remote set to run a script that kills
mythfrontend (I'm thinking of changing that to shut it down gracefully
using the python bindings), suspends, and then starts mythfrontend
again. I considered doing it all in /etc/pm/sleep.d, but it's easier
from a simple script because it's running as the correct user.
