Wonder if this might be related to 
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/6191 and/or 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/364996#364996 + 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/364362#364362 .  In 
the second issue (the one on the lists), it was sometimes a segfault and 
sometimes a hang.
