I've observed something similar, when mythfrontend is in "Watch
Recordings" and i switch viritual desktop and browse or something.
CPU goes 100% and the system reboots after some time :)
(My fan has limited RPM'S)
"off topic", im thinking of a ION frontend, but reading about
performance issues of mythtv.
But does other heavy doings like using firefox, ooffice, evolution,
gimp, kde-desktop suffer noticable with ION?
