I have xinerama on display 1, and that is where I have mythfrontend setup to 
run on.
Are you looking for a wide theme or are you suggesting it could cause it? 
This setup worked flawlessly until I enabled transparency..:-/

I've tried to get some log errors but it's not an easy thing todo since X 
crashes. When I do run mythfrontend I get a lot of X window opcode errors 
with mismatch..

It looks like if I run mythfrontend from a terminal like F2 and redirect the 
display to :0, go back to kde F7 it will run fine..and I have no idea why 
that could be. If I start it from within kde through a prompt or run, it 
will kill X when the video starts or a split second later.
