Did you try it? The reason why I think it should work is the myth.sh script NEVER dies,
and therefore the user will never get logged out. mythfrontend is called in a loop. The
only way to log out is to kill myth.sh. This is what I do in addition to the Frontend Auto Login,
just as you do.

You can use this in conjunction with your method, just run this script instead of mythfrontend.
