Well - I'm using fanarts only for Videos. Issue with lack of dialog background is seen in various places (LiveTV, Recordings, Videos). I'm not using any external script to generate fanart for recordings. 
Btw: As theme I'm using modified Arcligh. My mod is using different backgrounds (5 images in theme background dir. Myth autochanges them when user walks across various theme screens). Maybe this is comparable with fanart ?

By observation  - this issue looks to me like races problem. 
Dialog without background is random: sometimes 5 playback starts has all OK, sometimes every try has issue.
Maybe this commit is not root cause ?
I'm using 850ae1e with reverted commit since Yesterday on 3 FE - so far no single issue with background nor hang UI exiting Videos.
