[vdr] Segfault in dvbhddevice

For the past few weeks, I have been running the current 1.7.XX version 
of vdr with an S2-6400 card, using only one tuner, which is connected to 
a 4 x 1 diseqc switch, without any problems.

The startup command has been:

/usr/local/bin/vdr -L /home/rs/vdr/PLUGINS/lib -D 1 -P dvbhddevice -P 
femon -v /mnt/storage/video -s /usr/local/bin/pm &

Today I replaced my LNB's with dual output ones, with the second output 
connected to a second 4 x 1 disecq switch, which is connected to the 
second tuner on the S2-6400 card.

I removed the "-D 1" from the startup command and I am now finding that 
sometimes vdr crashes on startup, with the following error:

Mar  7 17:40:46 atom kernel: [   12.257270] vdr[755]: segfault at 0 ip 
00007fd3118426d0 sp 00007fffcbf98968 error 4 in 
libvdr-dvbhddevice.so.1.7.25[7fd311835000+18000]

If I then run the vdr startup command again, it starts OK.

Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide - the 
current version I am using is vdr 1.7.25.

Regards,

Richard
