A clip would be useful.

I'm going to sound like a stuck record here as well - but some full
logs would help even more. I need to try and replicate the same

I'd like to get the render branch merged in the next week or so -
otherwise it will start to get tricky testing before the next release.
As it stands, I'm reluctant to do so. I do not want to merge anything
that has unresolved instabilities - and mythpreviewgen crashing is a
blocker as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks again
