#8199: backend lockup on recording expiry

     Type:  defect                   |      Status:  new       
 Priority:  critical                 |   Milestone:  0.23      
Component:  MythTV - Recording       |     Version:  0.22-fixes
 Severity:  medium                   |     Mlocked:  0         
 Since the upgrade to 0.22 my backend keeps locking up on expiring old
 shows. This happens about once a day if my disk space is filled up and
 myth needs to expire recordings constantly. Mostly it happens when mythtv
 should start a new recording and tries to expire an old one to free enough
 disk space.

 If my disk has still plenty of space left, this doesn't happen really
 often but still happens. In this case it happens most often when I exit
 LiveTV and (I guess) the currently watched show is about to expire

 When the lockup happens, the frontend times out on the next action it
 would require backend connectivity.

 The backend process still keeps running. It is just not responding to any
 requests any more and stops logging. I have to restart it manually to
 resume normal operation.
