I don't know if it is related but I recently sumbitted a fix to stop the 
frontend from requesting the updated preview picture every 500ms which 
it does in the released version of MythTV.  I used to have my frontend 
lock up alot when left in the Watch Recordings screen and since that 
patch, I haven't had that issue.  If you're running the SVN version of 
Myth, updated to the latest version or apply that patch.  If not, it 
will be in 0.19
