I already tried running optimize_mythdb.pl, but it didn't make any 
difference, the problem still remains.

Neither the mythbackend, mythfrontend nor the mysql process seems to use 
any CPU at the time. The only CPU usage regaring myth was some 
commercial flagging job that were executed. But the problem is also 
reproducable when no jobs are running and then the CPU is pretty much 
100% idle.
