Thanks to both of you for the input.   Right now, my system is built 
from rpm, so recompiling isn't easy.  However, I have been thinking for 
a while that I need to set up a development area where I can compile the 
later versions.  This may be the prod I need to get it done. :-) That 
bug does sound very similar to what I experienced.   

One other thing, I just realised might be causing it, is that I just 
purchased a new 250 GB drive and replaced my older one that I was using 
for myth recording.  I formatted the new one with XFS, and now I read 
about a few problems with XFS in the archives.  I don't recall any 
problems before changing to XFS.    Also I found another recording that 
is causing mythfrontend to crash.  That's 2 too many :-).   So I just 
reformatted the HD back to ext3 to see if it makes any difference.

If the problems continue I will try to compile a later version.
