I'll second that. Tried to record the two Bourne films shown recently on ITV2? 
and got 42 Mb of log entries containing nothing but the above. Backend stayed 
up; continued doing the basic jobs while the above went on; finished (it 
thought) the recordings, no problems with any other recordings done before or 
since. Got two 0Mb files out of it. I wonder, since it only affected two similar 
films, whether they might have had some strange formatting in the stream to 
cause this. Whatever, I suspect these were kernel messages, not myth messages.

Mandriva 2007.1, kernel 2.6.17 AMD x86_64, myth built from trunk @ svn 14032.
