I currently have this problem and the best I can offer you now is a
potential work-around (assuming you have the exact same problem as
me).  One way to get an idea of whether you have this problem is if
when you try to change channels you get blank information about the
channel instead of what's playing.  I have to reapply this work around
each time I reboot and I havn't tested the effects of shutting down
mysql, mythbackend, etc...


/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend stop; 
/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend start

Since I am currently in the process of simply getting an initial
configuration together, I havn't looked into this problem more deeply
than getting this functional workaround.

debian unstable with:
mythtv       0.16-1
mysql-server 4.0.22-6
ivtv         0.3a (though I think the problem lies in the mythtv<->db
