This is quite similar to my experience.  In my case, the backend
process crashed every time I switched in and out of LiveTV.  This was
with an Asus M3A motherboard and an AMD Phenom Quad Core.  The i386
version is a lot more solid though sometimes either the frontend or
backend processes still die with a segmentation fault.

If I may ask, what's your MB/CPU/RAM config?  Because I'm thinking
about getting an Intel-based combo and trying the 64-bit version
again.  May be it's more stable than an AMD one.
