I think I've answered my own question - I'm providing it here for
completeness:  it appears that my recordedmarkup table had some
corruption issues.  This was causing the considerable logging as well
as some serious problems with playback in that programs were
"skipping" a lot.

mysqlcheck --user=mythtv --password=<pass> mythconverg --analyze


error    : Key in wrong position at page 8107008
error    : Corrupt

mysqlcheck --user=mythtv --password=<pass> mythconverg --repair


warning  : Number of rows changed from 761611 to 761606
status   : OK

Problem appears now to be solved.

I suspect that mysqld died for lack of memory a few days ago when I
had swap turned off and ran something really huge.  So I guess -
lesson to the wise: don't do that.

Rrrrrgh - lots of corrupted STOS episodes :(
