Just checking here - but you do need to explicitly enable the
SANITY_CHECK_BUFFERS code in pvrusb2-io.c. I debated leaving it on by
default for the release, but since (at that time) you were the only one
detecting a problem I decided against it. But now that two people are
seeing this, we know it's not a machine-specific issue and others might
see this as well. In that case, I encourage EVERYONE to turn this on.
BTW, I did try a long test looking for this problem with mplayer, just on
the hope that I might get some kind of misbehavior. The test ran for
about 26 hours - until it was unfortunately terminated by a neighborhood
power failure at about 1:15AM Sunday morning last weekend.
