MythSocket: writeStringList: Error, invalid string list. Segfault

Description

I'm occasionally hitting this bug when scrolling through the recordings list. The UI freezes, after a timeout the message appears saying that the backend has gone away (it hasn't) and then it segfaults.

Frontend Log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/56392/

Backtrace: http://paste.ubuntu.com/56394/

The timeout is way too long and I'm not certain if we are trying again during period or just waiting for a response to the first attempt. So there are about three seperate bugs here:

  1. Sending an invalid string list - could be network packet loss though
  2. Spending too long waiting and failing to retry?
  3. The segfault.

dup #6516.

I can't tie the backtrace to any still existing code. The rest of the issues are the same as in #6516.
