I'm still running valgrind to see what happens when the backend runs
out of memory.
It's a pretty big file and I have no idea what all the stuff in there means.
I hope somebody understands that suff.

I've attached the startup log of valgrind, I'm still waiting for
mythbackend to crash again. (going strong at 1.9Gb and rising)
