[ATrpms-users] mythtv segmentation faults - the mystery deepens

ahhhhrrrg I spoke too soon!
I thought that having removed and reinstalled the 0.25-285 rpms everything
was working fine but now after a couple of days running all the mythtv
suite of programs *segfault as soon as the program is started *again.
No rpms have been installed or changed
the box has just been on and has made a few recordings (plus had a few
recordings watched and deleted).
What is really strange is that rebooting makes no difference (all the
mythtv programs still segfault immediately) but removing and reinstalling
the same rpms (0.25-285) as were already installed (again) fixes this!
So can anyone suggest what sort of issue would:
1) takes several hours (or days?) to occur (on system which has previously
been running stably continuously for over five years)
2) once the issue has occurred it will cause *all* mythtv suite
(mythfrontend/mythbackend etc) programs to consistently (and immediately)
segfault as soon as the program is started
3) the issue will persist over restart(s)
4) the issue is "cleared" by simply removing and reinstalling the same rpms?
5) this issue started occurring at about the 0.24.2-281 went into
atrpms-stable (around 9th of April) - but could well due to an update from
an unrelated package at around this time....

as previously any help greatly appreciated (the wife is not to happy with
