I had this happen to me one time (that I know of) under 0.24. I saw
the process was running at 100%, and when I looked at the output from
ps, the process had been running for 2 weeks (presumably at 100% that
whole time). In my case, I'm not using an HD-PVR. Only a Ceton and a
HDHomerun (which is configured, but doesn't actually get used
anymore). Only saw it that one time, so I figured it's just a fluke
and didn't think much of it.
