I've been living with this problem for a while on my Mac Mini (intel
CPU) running Ubuntu, as well. All of my content is 720p. Sometimes
killing MythFrontend was enough, but sometimes I had to kill the whole
x-session in order to get anything to play back afterwards. On a whim
last night, I changed the resolution of my display to native 720p and
I haven't crashed at all so in my case it looks like stretching
content was the culprit.
