libmythfreemheg: Catch exception for unrecognised content

If an MHEG stream contains unrecognized content (in this case on BBC1 interactive 10-Feb-2011) then MHBitmap::ContentArrived calls MHERROR which in turn throws an exception looking for an external handler. Since there is no exception handler, libc terminates mythfrontend.
