Have you tried OProfile or strace -p <pid of vdr>, or attaching gdb to
the running vdr process?
I'm using a statically compiled matroxfb. I've used vdr+softdevice for
almost 2 years now, and I haven't had any problems for about a year.
(I reported quite a few issues that were fixed.)
A few times during the two years, I've seen softdevice displaying fewer
than one frame per second, running at very low CPU consumption. I
presume that there is some race condition in the thread setup. You
might be running into a similar problem. Post some debugging results,
and we'll see.
