I would suggest either running mythbackend in a terminal window until 
the lock-up happens and maybe the output will give you a hint (maybe it 
tries to delete expired programs and locks up the box) or you could send 
the output to a text file "mythbackend >> /var/logs/myth_errors" and see 
if that captures anything funky.

It seems that someone always has a response 10x better then mine so I 
wouldn't take my advice for granted, wait a few hours/minutes and you'll 
probably get a better response. ;-)
