Because in the runvdr script, the vdr command is executed by an "eval" statement
which basically waits for the process to die before it continues on.

eval "$VDRCMD"
if test $? -eq 0 -o $? -eq 2; then exit; fi
echo "`date` Reloading DVB drivers"
...


This is how the script makes vdr will restart automatically when it crashes. I'm
looking for a way to have vdr execute the command so I dont have to guess with
sleep statements.
