 I svn'ed up to the lastest HEAD yesterday eager to try the new mythvideo.
 I have to change my theme (no biggie) but now mythvideo (indirectly I
 would assume) hangs my machine. After about 3 mins of trying to load it
 the machine locks hard and the only way out is a reset. -v all shows
 nothing except a CDROM access error every .5 second but does this all the
 time even before mythvideo is started. I see the same behaviour in
 videomanager too.

 My question is what is being dome differently now so I can try and triage
 what is going on. I changed to the regular NV driver to rule out the
 propritery one for the hang and also changed my painter to QT. I was
 looking in /proc/<PID> at the open FDs for the little bit of time while
 the computer was responsive and it seemed it was trying to open all my
 cover files. I have maybe a 1000 videos or more so I guess this could take
 a while.

 I tried a memtest and the RAM is ok.
