Mythbackend, mythpreviewgen errors?

Looking at my Macports myth log, I see lots of lines like this:

mythbackend.20180105190822.18369.log-20180114:2018-01-09 22:01:02.178422 E [18369/171559] PreviewGenerator previewgenerator.cpp:275 (Run) - Preview: Encountered problems running '/opt/local/bin/mythpreviewgen --size 0x0 --chanid 1103 --starttime 20180110030000'

If you look in the mythpreviewgen log, it shows the same recording and it worked:

Preview: Grabbed preview '/Volumes/MythTV/MythTV Recordings/1103_20180110030000.ts' 1280x720@620s

Not sure what the deal is. I show an actual file with the same name and a .png on the end that was created.

This is with the 0.28 installed via MacPorts?

I get the same thing a few times per day. The size is always 0X0 -- I don't know if that is a valid size or not. Can't be bothered to test.

The useful information is that you get the same thing, so, thanks!

BTW - Qt 5.8.0 also works perfectly for me, at least on myth .29
