[mythtv-users] Connecting slave backend locks up master backend

I am running a recent trunk build number 25297 on Fedora 12 and Fedora 
13.  I have two f/e b/e combinations running on Fedora 12 and a multi 
purpose Fedora 13 that I use for a frontend at times and wanted to 
connect the backend on the Fedora 13 machine every now and then to help 
with commercial flagging during heavy recording times.

My problem is when ever I try to connect my third backend it will not 
connect and it freezes up the master backend.  I have firewalls on 
everything disabled and selinux turned off so I could make sure that was 
not the problem.  I checked the interwebs for help and nothing I found 
there helped.  I am running the same build on all machines.

Here are my error logs.
