have been having a problem last couple days where numerous instances of
mythbackend run for some reason. see below, theres 2 under my user
account and one under mythtv user. its only suppose to be myth user
correct? look at the load average!!! i dont think ive *ever* see it
that high?! only way i found out is things very recently became *very*
sluggish on this 3.2 ghz amd x2 which basically never happens otherwise.
havent done anything to the box last week other than add the graphite
theme, and fix fonts.
using trunk, mythbuntu weekly builds
any clue how i might cure this problem short of killing the "extra"
backends as they pop up which has getting annoying to say the least....
