I see this periodically. Mabye 1 in 3 times. It has been a while since I 
looked at it. I threw VERBOSE statements all over the scan code and could 
not for the life of me firgure out why. I think at the time I suspected a 
QT issue. Mythvideo will always add the files (with umlaut etc chars) on 
first try after a startup. A few scans later (*if it does not segfault) 
it will remove the files. Next scan it will readd. There was a thread on this 
previously : http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/392211

I will try to debug again with new effort again as no one else seemed able 
to reproduce it at time.

* Can't search trac for the ticket num at moment. BT is at 
Might thet be related?
