Description (last modified by sphery)

After upgrading to .23-fixes (r24035), I noticed several mythbackend processes in ps, releated to preview generation. The recordings were good, and the previews showed up as expected, but the processes never stopped. This is on my slave backend. My master backend does not appear to show any extra mythbackend processes.

I'm attaching a backtrace from one of the attached processes (pid 8813) and the output of ps aux | grep mythbackend.

Please let me know if there's any additional information you'd like me to provide.

ps aux | grep mythbackend

Would be worth seeing if this still occurs now that preview generation has changed so substantially.

Turns out to be a QT bug resolved in 4.6.x
