Glad to know I'm not alone on this problem.  I was beginning to doubt my
sanity;).  I'll try it this evening.

I've been experimenting with the same problem.  I think I /may/ have 
found the culprit, but I'm still trying to narrow down exactly where it 
is.  Try compiling up a release version, then go into your database and:
UPDATE settings SET data = '0' WHERE value = 'MaxTranscoders';

This will effectively disable the transcoding thread.  I've been running

live tv for 2 hours now with no crash yet.  If it runs all day, I'll try

to narrow down the problem in the transcode thread loop.
