One more point that I should have thought to mention when I started this
thread.  This problem is mostly new with a recent upgrade.  My old
system died (CPU or motherboard died after 5 years).  I rebuilt
everything, updating MythTV from the trunk, so my system has pretty much
the lastest revision of everything, built for amd64.

My old system was much-slower 32-bit Athlon system.  Every once in a
while, it would do the same thing on playback of a file, and once it
started doing that, it would do it every time until I reset the frontend
(ctrl-alt-backspace to restart X).

This suggests to me that this may be a long-standing bug that is now
exposed consistently due to either code changes or the different
performance characteristics of my new system.

I hope that gives some useful information.
