[vdr] VPS timer and missing running state

Hi,

a recording last night failed and I ask, if someone can explain the 
reason. 

The timer was for german channel ZDF with VPS info, but apparently a 
running state was not broadcasted. The timer started on scheduled 
time, but stopped after 4 seconds. It seems VDR detected that no 
running state is availabe, but stopped the recording immediately.

I know that VPS is not reliable, but when VDR can start the timer on 
right time without running state it should be able to stop it after 
scheduled time.

Is it a problem in VDR or did I miss something?
I'm using VDR 1.3.41 from c't distribution. The log entries during 
recording time, there was no user interaction:
