 Same problem as (closed) ticket 5436.
 I have the same symptoms on my backend, Q6600, 4GB RAM. Using newest trunk
 on fresh ubuntu 8.04, fully updated. Symptoms as follows:
  Every 30-60 seconds memory increasing by appr 500kb to 3000kb, typically
 around 1300kb, with and without recordings. (Checked with atop).
 using --noupnp flag does not change the symptoms.
 distclean and/or uninstall does not change the symptoms.
 I have to stop/start the mythtv backend once every day. Otherwise the
 system becomes unresponsive (memory and swap are filling up, load average
 I am able to produce gdb logs, as described in trac help, in the next
 couple of days. If a valgrind log is required, I would like some

 Please include all output in bug reports.
