I've been having this problem since 0.19. 0.20 still shows the problem,
but I have been living with it till this week as I thought it might have
bee an OS or frontend or graphics problem.
Having just built a brand new dual core AMD 64bit combined front end
back end machine, latest nvidia drivers and suse 10.2 , dvb-t UK system
I was horrified to get the message
last night.

Sorry if this has been covered but I really want to fix this now, anyone
know how I might start tracking this down.
