Mythbackend crashing, problems with Myth program guide

Every once in a while, I find that my mythbackend process goes away
(often overnight) and I have to restart it. Are there advanced builds
that I can help test that perhaps no longer have this characteristic?
Sorry I don't have more information about the nature of these crashes,
I'll pass these on to you when I get them.

Also, are you guys able to bring up your program guides without any
problems? I don't know if this is a MVPMC issue or a MythTV one, but
when I invoke my program guide I get the following errors to console:

2007-03-14 20:41:15.436 MythSocket(81de580:-1): writeData: Error, socket
went unconnected
2007-03-14 20:41:15.438 MythSocket(8261e00:-1): writeStringList: Error,
called with unconnected socket.

The program guide automatically exists when this happens, and it happens

In case this is a database/backend related issue, I'm wondering if you
guys have had problems with your setup?

Would you recommend trying to recreate my Myth database, or doing a
repair of particular tables or something? Any suggestions which ones to
focus on?

I know I'm asking a lot, but if any of you are having no problems with
your program guide, just let me know and I'll shut up knowing that this
isn't a FreeBSD specific issue :)
