I do understand that. I just think it might be helpful to not
simply say it is forbidden but to enforce it instead of
Considering the enormous amount of plugins there will always be
some plugin developers trying to do forbidden things and if a
user tells them "sometimes vdr restarts but I have no idea why"
it is almost impossible to debug that.
If you take my original two patches you could do
warn: background thread is not allowed to access osd
Otherwise I believe I understand what you propose and it seems
to be a good solution to me.
