MythTV looses focus and you have to click on it, as noted in previous posts. I have noticed you can alt-tab to get focus back. A bogus Xterm screen is listed when you alt-tab through the screens. What is a bogus xterm and is that why mythtv looses focus. If you toggle to the Bogus Xterm screen you get stuck nd have to kill the x session with ctrl-alt bkspc.
