[mythtv-users] possible bug in backend

Has anyone else run into a problem with their storage needlessly depleting?  Try recording something and deleting it without restarting the backend, then run:

lsof -c mythbackend

and see if there are files opened for read access which are deleted.  I've been needing to restart the backend everytime I want to reclaim disk space from deleted recordings for a few weeks now, and it's getting annoying, so I wanted to see if anyone else has this problem and submit a bug report if so.

I'm using MythTV CVS from yesterday, Debian sid, ext3, and Debian 2.6.7 kernel with LIRC and HD2000 patches.
