0.21 is quite old. Is that the same version as your backend? I use
0.21-fixes, on my Mac frontend.
To debug problems, I start mythfrontend via a terminal session, with
the verbose debugging enabled. For example: MythFrontEnd -v playback
That should give you more detail on what is failing. The actual
executable will be located at: MythFrontend.app/Contents/MacOS
