[vdr] vdr-kbd eats cpu

Hello,

from one day to another my vdr (1.3.31) stopped working. It seems to be 
running fine as nothing appears in the logfiles (started with -l 3 6), 
but I have no video/sound and top shows a vdr-kbd eating cpu.

I don't know how to track this, maybe I could try something with strace 
(how?)? Or could I check DVB-functions on hardware level?

In the meantime between running and running I installed some debs, but 
as far as I know nothing which should interfere with vdr.

Any suggestions what I could do?

Output from logfile and top follows:
