[mythtv-users] Crashes, slow menu's and playing DVD's

Ho - couple of questions that someone will hopefully be able to help with.

First, myth is crashing for me (stdout below) - when I go - setup --> 
media --> videos

Myth just crashes. There doesn't seem to be anything of interest in the 
logs.  I am running Kubuntu (edgy) and have installed via APT.

Second, I am also seeing the menu's sometimes being quite slow on my 
system (xp3200 512mb of ram) - is symptomatic of something more 
fundamentally wrong somewhere?

Third, is there a clever solution for playing a directory of VOB files 
from a backed up DVD?  Divx is great and all that but I'd like DVD 
quality.  The only way I can see is to add 'next file' in video manager 
- there must be  a play directory feature somewhere/how?

Thanks

Dave
