I had a similar problem -- cured by uninstalling monit.

It didn't happen initially when I upgraded to 0.22 (which I did very 
messily by upgrading Ubuntu 8.10 to 9.10 in one go, and it all went a 
bit strange for a while).  While sorting out that mess, monit got 
uninstalled, and mythtv has been fine.

I reinstalled monit this evening, and suddenly mythtv kept restarting -- 
I didn't notice until I found this thread that the restart was happening 
  exactly every minute.  For now, I'll live without monit.
