FWIW, I just started seeing this same behavior the last couple of nights
when watching recordings. Frontend will hang, no audio, freeze frame,
no remote input (ESC). When I ssh to the box to restart mythfrontend, I
can see that it's pegged the CPU at 100%. As luck would have it, both
times I had run mythfrontend by "hand" (because of a previous freeze),
so I wasn't logging. Both of my occurences happened after "input", i.e.
I was fast-forwarding, or trying to escape out of a recording.
I plan on digging into it this weekend, and if I find the 'cause I'll
post back to the list.
Fedora Core 1
