Looks like it's related to

The stack trace goes through ~QScopedPointer (it will destroy itself) so 
I don't see why MythNetworkAccessManager needs to delete it anyway.

It may still segfault if we take the delete out, but that's a Qt issue 
that's fixed in 5.7. I saw a discussion about backporting it to 5.6.x 
but I didn't read far. And I think Ubuntu may have patched it already.
