It is not systemd that runs and restarts mythfrontend.  If you are
running Ubuntu, /usr/bin/mythfrontend is a script that is run from the
X desktop setup (whichever desktop you are using).  That script runs
/usr/bin/mythfrontend.real which is the real executable file for
mythfrontend.  Whenever /usr/bin/mythfrontend.real stops, the script
checks the exit code and if it is not a normal exit, restarts
/usr/bin/mythfrontend.real automatically.
