No, MySQL 4 (version that comes with FC4). Recording has worked reliably 
for months when using different SVN version. This problem has started to 
appear just recently.

Because most of the stuff works, you only notice this when recording 
does not actually get recorded. Full backend crash would be easier to 
detect and do the restart :)

This thread death / starvation or what ever happens only every now and 
then. It hasn't occurred with latest SVN build, but that does not mean 
it's not there..
