I also managed to get the backend to crash yesterday.
I had some bad reception (antenna cable problems) so i started livetv to
check it and then switched channel and that consistently resulted in a
backend segfault.

I managed to get a backtrace and it crashed in a destructor a few calls
after TVRec::SwitchLiveTVRingBuffer.
But since i was not running latest svn i updated and then i was not able to
reproduce the crash, i don't know if this was becas it was fixed or that the
problem only shows up unders certain conditions.
So i didn't report the crash.

I've attached the backtrace from my crash incase you want it.
