Soundcard driver problem, again, as has been said in several emails now.  If 
you revert back to the 0.6 release, it'd do the exact same thing, as 
absolutely none of that code's changed in the slightest between 0.6 and 0.7.  
You most likely upgraded to the 0.9.0rc5 release of ALSA somewhere in there?

Just to reiterate:

  MythTV cannot a) make your machine hang, b) make your machine reboot, c) 
make coffee in the morning.  If either of those first two happen, it's a 
driver/hardware issue.
