[mythtv-users] IMDB lookups cause crash

I'm running MythTV on my Ubuntu Edgy Eft box and it is working very
well. LiveTv works well and all the plugins work perfectly. I can
import DVDs into my MythTv box and I can go into the video library and
play them. Sweet.
But if I import a DVD and then use the IMDB lookup to add movie info,
the frontend crashes when I attempt to just view the video library. I
then run 'mythfrontend' again and attempt to delete the metadata from
the newly added video, but the frontend crashes if I attempt this too.
The only way to fix it is to delete the offending record from the
"videometadata" table. Then I go back into Video Setup and have it
re-index the videos. This creates a generic database entry for the
video. But now everything works as it should.
Anyone seen a similar problem? I am fairly new to MythTV so it could be
a case of PEBKAC.
