actually, in playing around, I'm noticing that it looks to be the
shows that don't have downloaded fan art for the background that are
slow, as though mythfrontend is waiting for the image to download, and
if there isn't one it just waits some period of time before becoming
responsive again. So if I'm in a specific show with fan art for the
background it moves between episodes fairly quickly, but if it's a
show without, then it's very slow.
