#313: mythfrontend leaks file descriptors

 Priority:  minor             |   Milestone:      
Component:  mythtv            |     Version:  head

 When the recording file is available locally, mythfrontend (tv_play.cpp)
 does a "new RingBuffer" on the file twice, resulting in two open FDs.
 Only the second one is closed when the playback stops (you can see this
 with lsof).  If you delete the recording after watching, this can cause a
 "file deleted while open" discrepancy in disk usage (e.g. between df and
 du) as long as mythfrontend remains running.  Patch on the way...
