mythwelcome freeze hard lock

Description

It is really hard to describe this bug: at random my computer freezes (a real hard lock, i have to shut it down pushing the power button for 5 seconds - no ssh, no pings) when mythwelcome is running. Everything runns fine when mythfrontend is in foreground, but not with mythwelcome. The freeze happens at random: sometimes it works for hours and then the computer shuts down cleanly with mythshutdown when the recording stops, and sometimes (about 90% of the time) the computer hard locks in the middle of a recording or before shutdown. There is nothing in the logs that would help me, and I am really lost about how to debug this problem.

latest mythbackend.log lines before the crash: 2007-03-31 13:15:45.104 50 secs left to system shutdown! 2007-03-31 13:15:55.348 40 secs left to system shutdown! 2007-03-31 13:16:05.417 30 secs left to system shutdown! 2007-03-31 13:16:15.562 20 secs left to system shutdown! 2007-03-31 13:16:25.666 10 secs left to system shutdown! 2007-03-31 13:16:35.043 EITScanner: Added 1253 EIT Events 2007-03-31 13:16:35.065 Reschedule requested for id -1. 2007-03-31 13:16:35.656 Scheduled 27 items in 0.6 = 0.46 match + 0.12 place 2007-03-31 13:16:36.751 I'm idle now... shutdown will occur in 90 seconds. 2007-03-31 13:16:45.827 80 secs left to system shutdown! 2007-03-31 13:16:55.904 70 secs left to system shutdown! 2007-03-31 13:17:05.970 60 secs left to system shutdown! 2007-03-31 13:17:16.225 50 secs left to system shutdown! 2007-03-31 13:17:26.306 40 secs left to system shutdown!

This is on Ubuntu 6.10 with mythtv svn revision 13150 (but it happens with -fixes too, I updated in the hope the bug gets away, but no luck). kernel 2.6.17-11 with ubuntu patches.

The freeze happens only with mythwelcome, so I suppose it is really a mythwelcome bug.

Thanks, Simon

I and many other people use MythWelcome? all the time and never have any problems. This sounds more like a problem with your particular setup than a bug in MythWelcome?.
