The problem is that VDR writes the timers.conf file after the
key is pressed, but at that time the recording is still going on.

Clearing the flag when reading the timers from timers.conf or
an SVDRP command fixes it:

--- timers.c    2006/01/15 13:31:11     1.43

(I know, Thunderbird inserts blanks, but I'm just too lazy to
create an extra file attachment for such a one-liner ;-)
