What does MythGrowl do?  (I.e. any idea what the root cause is?  Is it
just sending a lot of backend status queries (HTML/XML) or some other
"known" way of crashing the backend?  If so, perhaps something like
myth_recent_recordings.pl (in SVN trunk) or a similar Growl-specific
script written to use the Perl bindings like myth_recent_recordings.pl
could be used instead.)
