Getting that patch applied is the easiest approach for you to get things
working as it takes a whole big group of invalid combinations of
settings off the table. The reason I haven't responded is not because
your issue isn't interesting, but because I've been trying to persuade
the devs to consider applying that patch to -fixes so that--once your
packager updates the package--it's much easier to configure your system
and debug issues. (And, IIRC, you're using Ubuntu, which is good
because the Ubuntu maintainers are very good about getting "needed"
fixes into the packages quickly. Not that the ATrpms and Gentoo
maintainers aren't responsive, but... ;)
If none of the devs take pity on you, I'll tell you that with the right
combination of X and MythTV settings, you can make it work. It's just
exponentially harder to do so with X saying that Xinerama is enabled
even though you're using only one screen.
