[mythtv-users] CPU runaway

I'm finding that myth frequently encounters a CPU runaway condition where
the idle percentage remains < 1 even when the load generating event has
finished.  I have seen this triggered during music playing and DVD playing,
but it is not consistent.

When under this cpu runaway condition, the load is split about 85:15
X and mythfrontend respectively.

I'm using the latest myth 0.20 from the atrpms build on Fedora Core 6.

Any ideas?
