[mythtv-users] Unexpected interaction between Mythfrontend and K3b

Hi:  This is probably not directly related to Mythtv but maybe someone 
here will recognise what is going on.

I often burn-and-verify DVD iso images using K3b.  Recently I have found 
that if I am watching a recording at the end of either phase of this 
process, I lose sound.  I haven't been able to restore it without 
restarting playback.

The DVD is probably being unmounted by K3b at the point when this 
happens.  I haven't identified sections of the frontend log that are 
obviously related to it, and it isn't something that can be repeated 
quickly for tests.  I first recognised the K3b connection yesterday, 
which was soon after an update of kdelibs and kdelibs-common, but it may 
have happened when another user was watching about two weeks ago.  I 
don't recall anything similar before that, but maybe I haven't combined 
watching and burning all that often.

My first thought was to try reverting the kdelibs packages but they 
would apparently take most of the system with them.  Any suggestions 
gratefully received.

Fedora 14 fully updated, 0.24-fixes latest from ATrpms dated 3 September.
