Wow. Now that's bizarre. Today I noticed Mythbackend running at 400%
CPU (Quad core) and here I thought it was due the upgrade I did
yesterday from 0.25-fixes to 0.25.2. Did a search in this forum and saw
this thread. Ran the 'date' command above and instantly mythbackend
went back to normal.
Thanks Ben (and Erik for confirming)!
