I have this happen occasionally.  Maybe once a month.  Any recordings that
Myth tries to make while the card is in that state end up with 0 size.

Yep.  It's happened with Myth 0.19 and 0.20-fixes on a FC4 machine, kernel
2.6.15.  I get pretty crummy reception on one or two channels, so I just
thought the driver or card is getting wedged from the poor reception.
