[vdr] Switching recording files

Fedora 8, vdr-1.4.7-6.fc8 and old full-feature Terratec C-card.
I've configured vdr to start two minutes before the time of the program,
and ten minutes after the recording, in case timing is a bit off.

For some reason, when recording the Finnish National broadcaster's (YLE)
programs, vdr every time wants to switch files just before the actual program
starts. Unfortunately it fails and ends up doing it just slightly too late,
causing a few frames of the program to end up at the tail of the two-minute
preamble. Quite inconvenient from an editing point of view.

What causes this (does YLE send a the-program-starts-now type of signaling?),
I haven't found a way to disable this in spite of going through the
configuration files?
