Like I said last time this topic came up: I somehow got rid off the
problem. I don't exactly remember the last thread about this problem
and I didn't keep the mails - but wasn't there someone who also got
rid off this problem by updating mplayer to a current SVN version?

I thought it had something to do with VDR's DVB settings and stuff
but I also updated mplayer.
Currently I'm using MPlayer dev-SVN-r22825-4.1.2 and VDR does not
crash when a timer triggers (or stops) while using mplayer. Well,
at least here.
