Comment(by jyavenard):

 I've seen that crash, it's the pulse library that crashes from time to

 Before, myth was calling the suspend call at the start of mythfrontend and
 then at the end...

 We now call it only when the audio card open, then close...

 Pulse seems to not like being suspended then closed too often :(

 OTOH, that the audio card is open and closed so often is a design fault
 with AVFD IMHO. It destroy/create a new audio instance whenever it starts
 decoding a new audio stream.

 Initialization of the audio class should be done at the beginning of NVP,
 and only once ; it would solve lots of other issues too..

 I was holding that change until the OSD branch got merged in, as it
 modifies NVP...
