[mythtv] Interesting bug in Mythmusic (major crash)

Since enabling the LCD stuff in Myth, and updating to CVS of a few days
back I get a really nasty crash in Mythmusic.
Basically when you are playing music, then hit 3 to edit the playlist,
make a minor change and hit cancel it locks up the whole app.
Now I just tried to use gdb to get a trace of where it's dying, but even
that appeared to be locked up as well. Issuing a killall gdb did kill
it, but a "killall -9 mythfrontend" just removes 2 processes and leaves
the other two hanging around... In fact I have repeated this several
times with and without gdb and I can't find any way to kill the app
short of a reboot - it just won't die...
The only clue seems to be that as far as I can see it requires that
specific code path, ie be playing something, then go and make a trivial
change to the playlist and exit. Simply going in and out of the edit
function doesn't seem to trigger it.
