Aha, I have managed to trace this to the kerneldeint filter!!  If 
someone else could just repro this for me, please download the above 
file, in the Setup |  TV Settings |  Playback option, add "kerneldeint" 
as your filter option.  Then try "mythtv duff.nuv" - I think this should 
reliably die now.

I also managed to get a bt which dies in mmx_yuv2rgb - I will try and 
repro a few more times and see if I can narrow it down a little more.  
However, I'm pretty sure that I am getting close now.  It's something in 
the filter functions I think

Thanks to all who tested the above file
