Subject: mythtv segfaults when mixing versions

yes I know, it's normal that segfaults can happen with mixed versions, I write
this to ask you if it can be avoided.

Long story short, I installed mythgame and forgot to explicitly ask for the
backports-repo. But it was hard to find that out, because it was 2 weeks ago
and I didn't restart since then. The error-messages are not helpful to track
this down.

Maybe the mythtv or libmyth-31 packages could conflict against older versions,
renaming to libmyth without the number would be against policy I think.
