# cat /var/log/Xorg.1.log |grep accel
(**) NVIDIA(0): Enabling experimental RENDER acceleration

Yup, this did it!
So, to resolve it, modify xorg.conf to show:
Option "NoRenderAccel" "on" # default=off
Works like a charm now. I'm really surprised there is no error checking
within the mythbackend or mythtvsetup to catch a condition like this.
I'm seeing nothing within the specified log file (via mythbackend
daemon) when mythbackend is set to log all errors.
