Mythfrontend hangs after playing video with mplayer

Ever since I started using mythwelcome, I have problems with my frontend hanging after using mplayer to play a movie. It is not happening immediately, if I start mplayer and quit it within 60 seconds or so, all is well, but after a few minutes, I can reproduce the hang nearly 100% of the time. Attached is gdb output and a few other things I thought relevant. If more is needed, I'll be happy to provide it.

I am no longer able to reproduce this. I think this bug is caused by some kind of a locking error. The things changed after the last time this happened are:

  • I upgraded myth to the svn revision: 14432. I did this because of the latest dvd speed updates
  • I removed my old code that tried to keep the speed down with help of an external program. It was fired once a second or so from the media monitor loop.

I think reducing the number of forks somehow fixed the problems with the wait.
