There was never any change to either 0.21-fixes (including all of the
pre-0.21 development, where the issue was noticed) or trunk (since 0.21
was released) that was known to have fixed the issue. It just appeared,
and a lot of people started looking at it, then it disappeared. (And,
as you can imagine, fixing a bug that you can't find is /very/
difficult, so there hasn't really been any progress since it disappeared.)
The issue has been reported by some people since then (generally as an
uncommon/unreproducible occurrence), but no one has been able to track
it down, let alone fix it. Therefore, I'd recommend sticking with
0.21-fixes rather than upgrading.
There's also a possibility that the HD-PVR may lead to a real fix for it
(as preview generation for HD-PVR recordings tends to cause similar
symptoms). The HD-PVR issue is likely to be fixed before 0.22 is
released, and if it's related, may also fix the preview-generation issue
