I'm not positive about what is indicated by the log records, but I've
seen these symptoms (slow seek, timer "countup" when doing so) when my
commflag markup table was messed up.

Least invasively, try:

	% mythcommflag --rebuild

Then try watching something and seeking around. If that doesn't work,
you could try repairing your database (read the whole thing and note
the notes about backing up your database, shutting down mysql, etc.):


Then restart mysql and run mythcommflag as above.
