[mythtv-users] Myth frontend forces disk spin-up

I've got a frontend-only box which spins down its disk once it has
booted.  I've done all the things necessary to make this work, e.g.
disabling swap and syslogd, putting ntpd's drift file on a tmpfs
partition, etc.

This works fine -- there are never any spontaneous disk wakeups.

HOWEVER, some menu operations within mythfrontend cause the disk to
spin up -- an example is accessing the 'Watch Videos' menu item.

Has anyone else encountered this, and fixed it?  If so, how?
