no, I have already tried ;-)
but thank for the advice.

I've finally found:
I threw a glance to rcu.c to see what had changed between the versions
(1.2.6 and 1.3.30) an I've seen that there is a supplementary inherance:
cThread.
Then, I remembered to have read that there were problems with the NTPL,
and that the solution was to add "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1"  before
launching vdr.

Now, all is working fine !

Eric.
