I have a HDHomeRun and am running very recent SVN (from Friday I
believe).  For a couple weeks now, I've noticed my mythbackend log
file getting really big, really fast.  It fills with lines like this
almost constantly:

2007-09-10 11:35:15.237 PID 0xa81 status: Unknown
2007-09-10 11:35:15.239 PID 0xa81 status: Unknown
2007-09-10 11:35:15.317 PID 0xa81 status: Unknown
2007-09-10 11:35:15.318 PID 0xa81 status: Unknown
2007-09-10 11:35:15.342 PID 0xa81 status: Unknown

The weirdest part is that this can happen even when the backend is not
recording.  No recordings in progress, and the frontend (my only
frontend -- same box) at the main menu screen, not in LiveTV.  I'm at
work right now and it's just filling away, 10-20 lines per second.

I have tried searching around, and even waited patiently hoping
someone else would have noticed the same issue (I do watch the commits
list very closely), but so far I haven't personally seen anything.  So
time to post and ask if anyone else knows what's going on :)  I fully
accept my public flogging if I missed the answer in a previous post,
or it's already a logged bug on Trac.
