[mythtv-users] mythfrontend almost unusable when mythbackend recording and comflagging

Two mythtv frontend / backend combination boxes and one stand alone 
I am running trunk and have noticed within the last few weeks I have 
been having problems with my frontends listing available recordings on 
the backends mostly when the backends are recording and commflagging.  
When this problem occurs I notice that the mythbackend process is 
consuming 5 times more CPU than during normal operation.  The back end 
CPU's are dual core and 2.4 GHz or better.  When this occurs the only 
way to get video listings from the backend is to restart the backend.  
After the backend is restarted CPU utilization returns to normal and 
listing of the available recordings is possible again.
Is there anything I can try or any data I can provide to help find and 
resolve this problem?
