[vdr] VDR shutdown problem(?)

What's the best way to shut down VDR without the process exiting
prematurely?  By that I mean before it has performed all of it's
cleanup tasks (like saving setup.conf, channels.conf, etc).  I was
told that the method that comes with runvdr ("/usr/bin/killall -q
-TERM") kills it instantly and it doesn't have time to do cleanup.

Also, can an svdrp command be added to perform a VDR shutdown?  I
notice the svdrp command "QUIT" described as "Exit VDR" but after
testing this command, nothing happened.

Cheers,
Derek
