[mythtv] problems with 'xbox hardware' option in cvs

I finally had time to play around with the new 'this is xbox hardware' option
in the settings section, and it isn't playing nicely with GentooX. I had
enabled it a while back, and noticed that, while it added a new option in
the settings menu', I couldn't actually select that option. If I go to
the option and hit 'enter' it just doesn't do anything.
Then, my frontend on the xbox was randomly freezing. It seemed to happen
not too long after I would start mythfrontend and would go to tv, watch
recordings.. and it would hang... Then, I discovered that it didn't
have anything to do with watching recordings, it just happened after an
unspecified length of time. Thought maybe it was the xbox setting (after
updating cvs a few times hoping it would fix it) and went to setup to
turn that off, and it locked before I could get there. *mutter mutter*
so, I changed it directly from mysql.
Anyhoo... I've tracked the bug down to 'blink' I am guessing that
gentoox handles blink differently than Ed's. When I kill mythfronted
remotely after it has locked up, blink seems to be running.
On gentoox blink asks for a 4 letter code for running, startup, shutdown
etc., and I get the feeling that mythfrontend is hanging while blink is
waiting for user input in the background.
So, that's the bug report, if you need more details, let me know.
