[mythtv] bug in QT or myth?

I've been having a problem on one of my frontends (QT
3.1), where about 2/3 of the time it isn't able to get
any information from the backend. I did a network dump
and it looks like the frontend is closing the
connection before the backend could return.

since it was disconnecting in under a second with a
readstring list timeout, i figured there was a bug in
QTimer. to verify, i added some debugging lines.

There is a print when it initializes the 'elapsed'
variable to 0, which prints elapsed and timer.elapsed,
and then when elapsed is updated, it prints the new
value for elapsed. Also when you get a timeout, it
prints the value of elapsed as well.

also, i wrote a little QTimer test program, which
seems to be behaving just fine (ie not jumping around)


here's the output:
