No, I get this behaviour on my combined FE/BE box. Reasonably sure this 
is in trac.

The other thing I've seen is an infinite loop of the last few seconds of 
the previous program at program change, which is definitely in trac 
because I put it there.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that the devs are aware of the 
changing programs + ringbuffer problems (at least I think so).
