[vdr] Dead lock in VDR/EPG scan

Hello

Yesterday i set EGP timeout to 1 in the hope the LNBsharing 
patch will prevent the usual deadlocks. It does not 
need to do anything.

It happens too that the box ran that hour without any recordings
instead of being powered off as usual, so EPG scan could really start.
(Hm, why 1h as minimum?)

As you may se below, 
"Starting EPG scan" starts at channel 0 (zero? What is channel 0?), 
switches to channel 1, that's Ok...
got new transponders/programs, that's OK. (so many new to day?)
then VDR switches to channel 279!
Why 279 and not 2? What's that?

The next timer event would be a timer to record channel 27 at 10:52
but the switch attempt occurs at 10:42:18 
and obviuosly leads VDR into a deep endless loop.

channel 279 is
OLD GOLD;PREMIERE:11720:hC34:S19.2E:27500:0:336=deu:0:1801,1722,1702:167:133:3:0

Never ever tuned to 279 (encrypted) channel, no timer except 
the one in approx 10 minutes at channel 27 ( an ASCII buffer Bug? *27*9?)
