Description

This is coming from a bug found in Ubuntu jaunty beta. It appears that a series of 3 commits in the X server related to FBConfig's and GLX visuals are causing mythtv's show() calls of QWidgets to fail. Accompanied by the visual failure, BadMatch? and BadRenderPicture? errors are shown in the terminal window.

Here are the 3 commits causing the problems: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?h=server-1.6-branch&id=8b967b24690cb072fc37c463eceb2b886cef80c4 http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?h=server-1.6-branch&id=516f8e2cad1311a09764e2633644188d1e3c31bb http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?h=server-1.6-branch&id=516f8e2cad1311a09764e2633644188d1e3c31bb

By adding printfs around the code, you can see that show() calls in mythmainwindow.cpp are when the X errors start to come up.

Trunk is not affected, this only affects -fixes builds.
