Coincidentally, I just saw this behaviour when watching an in-progress
recording of game 3 of the NBA Finals. 10s skips were no problem at
all to skip through the dead time between plays, but 10min jumps
caused the frontend to just sit there. We noticed this same behaviour
over the past weekend when watching an in-progress Agatha Christie
drama - albeit with 30s/4min jump settings.

Running mythtv-0.21-fixes-r20609. Passive EIT collection was in
progress (according to the backend logfile) at around the time of the
"hang". I'll see if I can reproduce this again with a long (~2hr+)
