Crashes at least once/day (WAF is going VERY down at this point).  Exiting a show would take up to three seconds.

I've been following this closely, and yes, I built yesterday, but perhaps my osx-packager did not pull the correct version since I'm still getting some of the same  Waited 100ms for video buffers ULAAAUUAuUALUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUAA errors.

There are several assembler-optimized routines in the ffmpeg code that Myth uses.  *I* think that made a huge difference to the on screen display responsiveness but maybe I had some other config problem between the two builds. 

I downloaded/compiled/installed YASM myself before the build, but yes... I did build yesterday.

Looking at the current build of mythtv on the mac sourceforge site, I see it updated yesterday, I find it difficult to decipher Git versions... when was the version up there (v0.24-108-g798359f-dirty) built?
