Comment(by Hans-Peter Oeri <hp at oeri.ch>):

 Unfortunately, I don't see through the whole allocing/freeing businness in

 I found, however, that removing a special "stream" from the mpeg ts
 changes the memory behaviour:

 I have the following streams in the file:
 0xA1 => MP2
 0xA3 => AC3
 0xA5 => Teletext (TTX)
 0xA9 => VPS

 It seems, myth recognizes 0xA9 as "second" video stream, which it isn't
 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_Program_System). Removing 0xa9 from
 the file (mpegdemux -r / project-x) is a work-around for me.

 As VPS is not interpreted by mythtv anyway, and there is no information in
 VPS to keep, such streams may be safely discarded.
