[mythtv-users] Backend suddenly segfaulting...

My frontend turned into a nasty zombie process on Friday night so I rebooted
my machine.  Now my backend keeps segfaulting.  At first I thought perhaps I
had a SQL database corruption by I ran a check mysqlcheck on the database
and everything came up as OK.

I turned on "-v all" and ran the backend in the foreground and sure enough,
it is segfaulting.  Interestingly, the last line in the log is consistently
(timestep aside):

2009-05-03 20:27:25.883 MSqlQuery: SELECT MIN(id),dirname FROM storagegroup
WHERE hostname = 'mythmc' GROUP BY dirname;

I'm running MythTV out of the Ubuntu repository (8.04) which is "mythbackend
version: 0.21.20080304-1 www.mythtv.org".

The query is for storagegroup directories and nothing has changed there (no
directories suddently missing or anything).  Anybody have any ideas?  This
machine has been running pretty solid for 6-9 months if I recall correctly.
I don't understand why it should suddently segfault.  Any suggestions?
