I'm seeing the frontend 'crash' when exiting the watch recordings screen. What 
actually happens in my case is that the Mythfrontend window disappears but 
the program is still running and I have to Ctrl+C it in the console.

It happens regularly but not all the time. Usually when it crashes I've just 
stopped watching a recording and I'm exiting quickly back to the main menu 
(Esc, Esc). I wondered if it wasn't connected to the preview video somehow - 
i.e. it was buffering/initialising when I exited and this caused problems.
