[mythtv] Frontend dying on aspect ratio change

Just tried it here and got the same results as Chris :-| 

This was with current cvs on a 3.0Ghz P4 (Fedora FC 1). If it is a race condition, then the type and power of your machine might be critical, along with the kernel version etc. 

Could you post some more details perhaps ?

Hmm, how very odd.  It dies reliably for me, I have reverted to cvs of a 
few days ago (ie without any other mods), and it's still happening.  As 
far as I can see the stack is getting trashed when it does segfault, but 
it would be useful if someone else could repro it..?

Thanks all
