No problem... happy to help.

That's good.

To determine the actual version of myth, just run 'mythfrontend
--version'.  This should let you know exactly what you have.

Do you have a jump point set up for Live TV?  Can you try clearing it
out and see if the problem still exists?  Also, have you tried setting
up jump points for other areas of MythTV?  Try setting up a few others
and see if they behave as expected.

I duplicated these on my system, but everything still works as expected.

I'm surprised too.  I've never heard of this problem until now.  XvMC
has nothing to do with the menus or jump points... it's used
exclusively for MPEG2 playback.
