MythTV GUI configuration error (Where are the text config files?)

I got MythTV up and running on my Suse 10.1 machine. Because I'm not very smart, I fiddled with the GUI size settings. Now, when I run mythfrontend, my monitor goes black, save for a message that the VGA mode is not supported. Anyone know where the config file is that I can edit to undo the changes I made?

MythTV uses a MySQL database for most of its settings. The database is called "mythconverg". If I remember correctly there is a table called "settings" that I'd look at.

Edit: Take a look at
