[mythtv] A few potential bugs ...

I'm starting to think I attract bugs, at the very least some of the devs must
be sick of me!
Here are a trio of bugs/problems which I have encountered with current SVN:
1. Seek table weirdness. For the third time in two days the seek table for a
recording appears to be corrupted - that is the 'seek table' not the 'seek
table table' if you follow! I started to watch two of these recordings whilst
they were still in progress but otherwise I cannot see any connection between
them. I had to rebuild each one with mythcommflag --rebuild
2. I was watching (testing) live-tv when the 'a recording will start' dialogue
appeared. I elected to watch as it was recorded. A minute or two into the
recording I exited to the menu and noticed that the recording ended when I
left playback. It also seems the recording was added to the live-tv group
instead of the default group.
3. Although the backend log stated that the above recording ended, according
to the 'Program Guide' screen in the scheduling options the recording was
still in progress. Selecting 'Stop Recording' on the contextual menu had no
effect and I had to restart the backend before I was able to restart the
recording. I've noticed a similar problem with transcoding, selecting 'Stop
Transcoding' from the 'Watch Recordings' screen just refused to work for me.
4. Yes I know I said 'trio', but I'm not sure if this is a bug or user error.
I was trying out the new 'MPEG-2' transcoding option but each time it failed
complaining "Transcoding aborted, need MPEG-2". Is there a new dependency
that I've missed? It finally died with "Deadlock detected. One buffer is full
when the other is empty! Aborting"
