Somehow this seems to be mythtv/ALSA -related: 
I disables the internal ethernet in BIOS and installed 3c905C Tornado. 
I get the same symptoms - it only takes few minutes instead of 20sec before the hang. 

Every other program works flawlessly except mythfrontend. 
Even mythfrontend works right with /dev/dsp (compiled without ALSA and used with internal Mobo-soundcard and without Audiophile card). 
And if I copy .nuv-files from backend to frontend I can watch them with xine and mplayer with ALSA and audiophile. 

What should I check next? I'm running out of ideas...
