What versions of Myth and MySQL are you running?

I have 102+ GB of music in my system and there are no problems. The
latest release of Myth (0.19) seems to have speed up some of the steps
in loading up the database incrementally but the initial load can still
take a long time. My load was 4+ hours on a 4x2.0 GHz opteron system.
