#929: Backend SIGABRT, gdb backtrace
 Reporter:  rkulagow  |        Owner:  danielk
     Type:  defect    |       Status:  new    
 Priority:  major     |    Milestone:  0.19   
Component:  mythtv    |      Version:  head   
 Severity:  medium    |   Resolution:         
Comment (by danielk):

 Valgrind won't produce a final report until you exit the program being
 checked. What it does is print out information whenever a suspect memory
 operation is seen. Then I read through them tossing the ones that don't
 look like real errors, until I have 3-4 candidates. Then I look at the
 code near those errors and try to spot an error, if I don't spot anything
 obvious I add instrumentation to help me find the problem, perhaps getting
 you to run the instrumented version.
