When you exit the dialog, frontend hangs, the picture freezes and you lose IR control. I have no keyboard on this machine so I do not know if keyboard also goes away.

It depends which option you choose. If you choose the first, which is to
watch it while it records, it does sometimes hang for me. The keyboard
is also useless and I had to kill mythfrontend.

If you choose the second (record and return to menu), it will often show
you the recording rather than quitting to the menu.

It looked to me like the menu handling code was wrong, but I checked it
and couldn't spot anything at a glance. However I think it sometimes 
works as intended, making it even more confusing.
