Bug Description

Binary package hint: mythtv

With latest version in karmic repository (0.22.0~trunk21742-0ubuntu1) command 'mythfrontend' launches frontend succesfully which was not the case with earlier version, mythtv-setup is functional also.

Command 'mythtv' still crashes like reported in first post, maybe it is not intended to run directly?

That is correct. It is an unfortunately named test application. mythtv-test would be an infinitely better name.
Even still, upstream has corrected the crashes of this app in, which will be included in the next sync upstream.
