Mythtv 0.22-fixes

0.5%-1.0% CPU when idle on menu screen and nothing being recorded.

Fedora 10

AMD X2 Athlon 5200+

QT Painter with Graphite theme or Minimalist theme.


While recording from my HDPVR, mythbackend usually reports 2.5%-3% CPU, and
mythfrontend will report 6%-7% during playback, so unless there is a
mythcommflag job running, I don't hit 14% even while recording or watching
