And found a consistent way to crash the master backend or at least get 
into an undefined state.

Use Mythweb and select "Recorded Programs", while it is building the 
page choose "Delete"  for one of the programs  already shown. 
I have > 100 recordings, which takes care that building that page takes 
time (> 15s). For the program i delete i use a test recording.

After above actions i have one of 2 states:
-1- a long list of "waiting for thread..." messages and a completely 
unresponsive master backend
-2- master backend seems to be alright, but any  scheduling change is 
not seen, nor acted upon.
