Betreff: AW: [mythtv] Backend Crash withoutr Segfault....

I now also tried the fixes branch, same problem here. Backend runs, frontend
or MythWEB could not connect to backend. After a backend restart everything
works fine. I also see know that no new recordings are started when this
happen's but I think started recordings are finished, but I'm not sure. What
can I do to backtrace this problem??

Can it help when I run myth in gdb and create a backtrace when the frontend
could not connect?

If it's running it has not crashed. It looks like it doesn't accept 
incomming connections anymore. The frontend shouldn't crash in this 
state but the frontend bt is missing. I suspect it crashes because of 
the qt4 no connected database bug.

A friendly advice: please switch to 0.21-fixes. Trunk is at the moment 
less stable as usual and some things still don't work. Having someone 
who can't resolve easy compile errors alone running trunk and stumble 
upon the problems is not really helping at this stage.
