These logs were not made with up to date SVN, so they don't tell me
exactly what is wrong. Maybe your lib path is broken?

Anyway it seems to have been caused by a RingBuffer shutdown issue.
Try revision 7368 or later, it may be fixed there.


Please make sure you are running with up to date libs.

Try using this command:
   ldd `which mythbackend`

It will tell you what libraries you are using on the backend.

If you installed mythtv in /usr/local/lib/ make sure you see:
   "libmythtv-0.18.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libmythtv-0.18.so.0"
