OK, the results are in, but they are not good. I am still seeing the
same exact ssues. Everything works fine for a while, but then randomly
Mythbackend stops responding to the mythfrontend and the mythweb
interfaces until it is either restarted, or the strace is run agains the
mythbackend PID.

Running an strace with the -f parameter seems to wake it up and the
frontends work again and the scheduled recordings start again.

Would really love to know what may be causing this. :)
