This is disturbing news, I have a MyBlaster and am planning an upgrade.
Are you using the serial version of the MyBlaster? Are you using a standard serial port or a USB-to-Serial adapter?

If you mean Myth 0.24, the perl script for the MyBlaster is not part of Myth itself, so I doubt it.
I'm wondering if this might help:
But AFAIK the script doesn't so anything unusual, it's pretty straightforward.
I think the answer is to solve the freezing problem, at least I have no intention of replacing my own MyBlaster, it just
works too well.
