That only happens to me occaisionally... 

The main problem is that sometimes on startup and sometimes after ff'ing, the 
machine can get so i/o bound, it's unusable. The other day it go so bad you 
could ssh in, type your username and it wouldn't go any further, i don't 
remember if I killed myth or it died itself, but I ended up with some weird 
sound and sql errors (something about something missing from the database). I 
think I had to reboot after that to get it working again

Quality under RTjpeg looks good here, under Mpeg4, not so good, mind you when 
the quality on mpeg4 approaches what I get with rtjpeg, the framerate drops 
quite a bit, say 20-24fps
