There was a ticket submitted at http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3823 ,
but it was closed as worksforme by Chris Pinkham. I mentioned to him

Don't worry about opening the ticket--until we identify the bug (rather
than the symptom), the ticket isn't helpful. It's on my TODO list,
which is what I use rather than Trac to track my in-progress projects.
I'll admit it's not the top of my list (I have a couple of new things
I'm trying to get done for possible inclusion in 0.21), but even if it's
fixed post-0.21, the fix will be backported (unlike new features ;).
However, if you have any additional information that could be useful in
determining the cause/source of the problem, this would be a perfect
