[mythtv] Ticket #6853: Apparent deadlock on playback exit

I am still getting these lock-ups.
Recently it also started happening on DVD-rips that I have in MythVideo
(HD/SD and avi/mp4).

For now to mitigate it, I've set up a script that attaches gdb to
mythfrontend and then detaches right away. That seems to resume normal

Initially I thought to blame this on sound-card driver issues, however this
seems to happen on built-in Realtek ALC662 and external USB SoundBlaster MP3
regardless whether i'm doing AC3 passthrough or not.

I'd really like this addressed somehow since it really decreases WAF at
times when I'm not at home to press 'reset' button on time.

I'm currently running trunk r22076. I can update to latest-n-greatest if
needed without much hustle.

Let me know if there is any debugging/tracing/logs that I can provide to
help to resolve this.
