Thanks for the info.
In summary, I'd have to recompile MythTV with debugging support
enabled. Is it feasible to compile the myth source and replace the
mythbackend binary that was installed from RPM with a mythbackend binary
compiled with debugging support enabled? Or would I have to go the
whole hog and do "./configure --compile-type-debug && make && make install"?
