[mythtv-users] Strange MythBackend troubles

So occasionally, my master backend gets into a strange state.   I have a
frontend and a backend running on each of 2 boxes.  The master backend
occasionally gets into a state where the frontend will report that the
backend is down when trying some things (like deleting a recording for
instance), but other menu items that use the backend work fine.  When it's
in this state, neither frontend works correctly.
/sbin/service mythbackend restart fixes the problem temporarily.

The other strange issue is that the tuner on the slave backend does not seem
to be recognized ever.  I haven't looked into this too extensively, since I
rarely need to record more than one show at a time, but may spend some time
on it this week.  It also appears that when I watch live TV on the slave
box, it's using the tuner from the master box, not the local tuner.

Any ideas?
