I grabbed it Friday night.  Again Saturday, and again Sunday.  Didn't 
notice anything in the commit logs all the way until Monday afternoon 
when I checked last.  So when I said "over the weekend", it really way 
over the entire weekend, grabbing from CVS each day.  Same behavior. 
I did not grab anything last night, so I missed your changes that you

Yes, I know a gdb trace would be spectacular, but as I said for some 
reason gdb was not cooperating.  I'll get the exact error message 
later, but I'm sure there was no call stack to print out.  I think it 
was getting confused with all the threads.  In fact at one point I 
couldn't even start the frontend because gdb had mucked up the threads.

Even with the June 15th CVS snapshot I grabbed, I had the backend 
crash this morning.  It used to be rock-solid until about late May, if 
memory serves...  Now I have to continually check mythweb from work, 
and if the backend has crashed, ssh into the box and restart it.

I'll do my best to get a backtrace out of it tonight with a latest CVS.
