Simplest way would be to have myth call a shell script that does a sleep(2)
and then executes your program. This will keep you from doubling up but it
adds time to every change. A better way would be to add support for a lock
file to your script. Thats what I did in my MyBlaster script and it works
well. Search the archives if you are interested in looking at my script.
