[mythtv] race condition on playback

Playing back recording with CVS from about 4 days ago.
Every couple (=2) of minutes mythplayback (mpeg2 recording) goes to max
processor load for a few seconds. Nothing shows up in either mythbackend
or frontend log. The result look like fast forwarding for a few seconds
and audio stops. Pressing pause/play fixes things. After 10 seconds
playback goes back to normal and mythfrontend goes back to about 30%
>From frontend log :
Using realtime priority.
Video timing method: USleep with busy wait
Any tips on how to debug this? Would this show up if I do a backtrace?
Already played with different deinterlacing filters, extra audio
buffering and video as timebase but that doesn't seem to make a
difference. Extra audio buffering seem to make the effect less noticable
(shorter skip) but it is still there.
The same recordings play fine on another box with an older myth install.
