Just wanted to provide a final update on my lm-sensors-related crash:
it turns out that the difference between the official 0.20.2 Debian
packages from Christian Marillat and the packages I built using his
sources, and that fix the crash for me, is that my build machine didn't
have the libsensors-dev package, so the Myth configure script didn't
pick the dependency and therefore my mythbackend binary is not linked
with libsensors.

This leads me to believe that there is something in the mythbackend code
that interacts that libsensors that is not right and is causing the
crash (perhaps on machines that don't have sensors?)

I know you mentioned you were going to remove sensors code from the
backend. However, if you need someone to try a patch just let me know (I
don't use sensors so I don't care one way or the other, just trying to

Oh, one last question: do you know when the sensor code landed in the
-fixes branch? I know that for some time -fixes didn't have any problems
for me so I wonder when it all started.
