[mythtv-users] Issues with playing videos from external player.

I'm using xine on some of my videos and the internal player with others. For
the past few weeks I have noticed an issue with exiting the external player,
even when it gets to the end of the video and exits itself. 

The issue? Xine starts playing the same video again.

If I hit the remote button mapped to exit xine a few mins after starting a
recording, it exits no problem.

If I watch something like an hour long and hit exit on the closing credits,
xine closes, and then relaunches playing the same recording.

If I let xine play through to the end of the video and close itself, again
it relaunches and plays the same media again.

I have even tried sshing into the frontend and killing xine, and it still

I usually have to spam the exit button several times or spam killall xine
via ssh to get it to finally stay closed.


Has anyone seen this behavior before?  Any ideas on where to start looking
for the cause?

I have had no luck tracking this down myself.
