I have a dual AthlonMP 32-bit backend and a Athlon64 front end and I do
not regularly see this problem.  When I do see it, it happens because
something has corrupted the mythconverg.recordedmarkup table.  See:


I Googled around for it but I couldn't come up with a better take on
solving the problem, even thouhg I know I've seen one before.  Perhaps
someone else will chime in.

Good luck,
