 m_buffer instead of being filled with the stream data it contains a web
 page showing a "500 Internal Error". So for whatever reason the VBox is
 failing to start streaming and that is somehow causing the segfault.

 HTTPReader::DownloadStream(const QUrl url) exiting quicker than when a
 stream succeeds possibly with the order of the SIGNALS being called in a
 different order but I still can't see how that leads to the segfault in
 the BT. Open to suggestions :)

 The seg fault happens like clockwork on my system (either with
 mythfrontend or with Kodi  and pvr.mythtv addon).

 I can patch a source build if you have some extra logging statements you
 would like included to narrow down the problem. Just let me have details
 of what and where. I currently have a source build of 0.28 fixes, but if
 you want me to patch 0.29 I can do that.
