Di you also update Myth at the same time, perhaps from a trunk version
before r19069 or a -fixes version before r19222 to one after?
If so, I'd guess--especially with the "every 10 or so"--it's actually
running gnome-screensaver-command that's causing the issue.
After the above mentioned versions of Myth, gnome-screensaver-command
will /only/ run at most once every 30 seconds and /only/ if you actually
have gnome-screensaver enabled and running. Before, it ran every
/remote button/ press or every joystick event. Note that it does /not/
run for keyboard key presses.
So, if you do not see the sluggishness when using a keyboard, or if you
can exit/kill gnome-screensaver (making sure some GNOME thing doesn't
restart it) and restart the frontend and don't see the sluggishness, or
if you make Myth run /bin/true instead (see
more on temporarily making it run /bin/true ), then it's
gnome-screensaver-command that's causing your system to "lock up."
