 I have a reproducible problem and tried several 0.25-pre versions since
 the beginning of march. On a channel change for a recording and a running
 (or maybe just ending) EIT update to the DB I get a SIGSEGV, almost every

 Reply from Michael:
 Got a chance to look over the back trace and it's definitely a bug in our
 code--the EIT scanner is not being shut down properly and is trying to
 change channel on a null TVRec.  It may be related to
 http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/10016 , but at this point it makes
 sense to just create a new ticket for it.  Please attach your log file and
 back trace to the ticket (or let me know if it refuses to let you due to
 the spam filter--which might not be working properly after the move to the
 new server--and I can upload them for you).
