[mythtv] Re: frontend lockups while editing cutlist w/back trace

I just updated to the latest cvs (sept 16 @5:00 p.m. edt).  Still lock 
up in editing.  Great new though, I can reliably repeat one of the lock 
up conditions.  I think there may be more than this one but let's see 
if someone can help us squash this one.

BTW is everyone that experiences this lock up using a pvr-250?

I can lock it up every time by skipping through the cuts using 
"cutlist" increment after skipping to the cutlist at the end of the 
recording.  Mythfrontend reports:

Waited 2 seconds for data to become available, waiting again...
Waited 2 seconds for data to become available, waiting again...

I saw the second line get printed just after I ALT-TAB'd to the window 
the frontend is running in.  May be unrelated to the cause of the lock 
up though.

BTW, thanks for the popup "allow editing to continue."  This will 
definitely make find this problem easier.

I just check skipping off of the end of the editing bar using 5 minute 
increment and that locks it up too.  If someone can tell me how to 
retrieve the actual cutlist points from the database that might help.  
It sounds like its not "looking before it leaps", so to speak.

Help would really be appreciated.
