[mythtv-users] CD woes

I have a problem when trying to play music CDs.

First off, I am using KnoppMyth...  Pretty much stock; I have not made 
any changes except to LIRC.

When I try to play a CD, most of the time mythtv crashes.

Basically the GUI disappears, leaving the bare desktop still running X, 
and the mythtvfrontend process is consuming 99% of CPU....

There are no errors anywhere in any log file that I've found, and I 
haven't been able to figure out what player mythtv is using...

When I try to rip a CD, it rips the first second or so of every track, 
and then ejects the CD.

It does this with both CD players in the machine; an internal IDE CD/DVD 
player and an external firewire DVD player/burner, so I am pretty sure 
it's not hardware related, at least in that sense.

Recorded movies and DVDs play fine using either player.

Any ideas?
