Thank you for that hint, Christophe. :)

Reducing "define MAX_RUNNING=1" instead of 27 in fact slows down the whole 
process, but the real problem unfortunately stays.
In fact I have tried a couple of numbers: 1, 2, 10, 20......

7 walkthroughs - 7 different scan results. :(
WHERE the timeouts happen is highly "by chance". :(
There are channels missing in one walkthrough that appear in another and so 
on.......

The scan result you can never call "standardized" or equal, as the number of 
dumped services is never at least close to equal. :(

Kaffeine's scan result appears far more confidential than the one of "scan".

Any other hints from your part where I could poke around in scan.c to resolve 
that issue???
Would be a pleasure! :)

Best regards

Uwe
