Can you try a simple mod to that patch?

Change the



    (filename.startsWith("myth://") || filename.startsWith("http://"))

I believe we do load some files using relative filenames, so it may be
an issue with that somehow, although I don't see why they'd have an issue
loading in the background.  So, yes, it may be a race condition that is
only being exposed because we're loading some things faster by not blocking
the UI while looking up the last modified date on remote files.
