Actually, it would be nicer if someone could submit a useful bug report
on this situation so that the person "responsible" could look at it. :)
I've been running the commercial skip code in 0.16 on my master backend
and main frontend since about 3 weeks before 0.16 was released and
haven't seen the issues people are talking about.  I get emailed the
backend log everytime my backend restarts and can't remember when the
last time I got one of those emails was.

To those of you who are having problems, you should recompile with debug
support turned on then run mythbackend under gdb to see if you can find out
where it's crashing and get a backtrace and submit a bug report.  Until then
it's highly unlikely that it will be fixed.
