[mythtv-users] Losing connection to mythbackend

I'm having a really frustrating problem with 18.1 on Fedora 3, built from the
stable atrpms with all the latest stable updates. My problem's been
happening for about a month now.
After watching a few recorded shows (sometimes after just one recorded show),
when I try to delete the recording, my mythfrontend seems to lock up.
Really, it's just waiting to hear from the backend. After a long pause, I'll
finally get an error stating it can't communicate with the backend, wondering
if the backend is even running.
Using ps -ef the backend seems to still be up. I look in /var/log/mythtv, but
I can't find any error messages in the logs.
If I simply restart the mythbackend and mythfrontend, it will work again, for
a show or few, but then the problem will reoccur. This can be really
frustrating when the mythbackend was recording.
If I don't want any recordings, the myth seems to keep working and recording
Has anyone else seen anything like this? Does anyone have any ideas where I
might start looking? Without any errors in the logs, this is a tough one for
me to troubleshoot.
Thanks for any advice or ideas people may have.
