In running Mytharchive (archiving files to a standard DVD), I get the 
following showing up in mythburn.log:

<earlier log entries snipped>

( 0:00:00.024 ) *** stack smashing detected ***: mythreplex  terminated
 ERROR: Failed while running mythreplex. Command was mythreplex --demux  
--fix_sync -o /home/mythtv/work/1/stream -v 224 -a 192 

Can anyone give me a clue as to what "***stack smashing detected***" 
means in this case?

The system is a combined frontend/backend running FC5 and MythTV 0.20 
installed Per Jarod Wilson's instructions.  The files are direct MPEG 
files produced by a Hauppauge PVR-150.  Thanks for any 
help/direction/friendly harassment.
