[mythtv-users] [mythtv] segfault in libmysqlclient.so.21

I've been following the issue on both this list and at 

There doesn't appear to be a fix yet?

So my high-level questions are:

1. Since I have mythtv v31 on Ubuntu 18.04 with mariadb, should I avoid 
moving to Ubuntu 20.04 when the 20.04.1 is released with an upgrade 
path? seems like the answer is "yes"

2. Since this issue is mariadb specific and I really have no need to be 
on mariadb specifically, could I convert to v31 and Ubuntu 20.04 doing 
the following:

- backup mythconverg db (mythconverg_backup.pl) on current system and 
all recordings.

- fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04 and mythtv v31 with standard mysql that 
the mythtv install pulls in.

- restore all files and mythconverg db

*Alternatively I thought about this sequence:*

- backup mythconverg db as above.

- uninstall mythtv and mariadb-server

- upgrade Ubuntu to 20.04.1 and install mythtv v31 with default mysql

- restore mythconverg db

Any thoughts other than, "if it ain't broke don't fix it" :-)
