[mythtv-users] My backend goes out to lunch in mythtv.25

I finally got off my butt and decided to post this before opening a
ticket.  I've been running .25 for about 4 months.  Since upgrading,
I've noticed the backend stops responding to the frontend rather
frequently.  By frequently, I would have said 1 to 2 days.  So much so
that I've set up a cron to restart the backend nightly.  Now, with the
increased amount of shows kicking in, the backend checks out sooner.

By check out, I mean the backend stops responding to the frontend and
mythweb hangs when trying to hit the status page.  (Picture that little
loading timer circle never coming back)  From what I can tell, shows are
still getting recorded so that's good. Unfortunately, if we can't watch
the shows without restarting the backend it won't be very wife friendly.
 There are also log entries in the backend log so it's doing something.

On another note, I've also noticed the frontend will randomly just exit
from within a show.  This appears after 5-6 days or so and doesn't seem
to have a predictable pattern before it happens.

Here is some of the particulars:
	Host: mageia 1 32 bit
        Myth is self compiled.  Not installed from the official repository.
        kernel = (4 G of memory in server)
