I haven't noticed that problem. I do have to restart VDR every few days
anyway, because it has a memory leak. Disabling eepg didn't fix that
IIRC, and the leak hides from valgrind.
I use 'apt-get source' to fetch the eepg plugin from the yavdr PPA:
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/yavdr/unstable-vdr/ubuntu oneiric main
The binary package is incompatible with Debian unstable, but that source
always compiles OK for me when a vdr upgrade makes it necessary. The
current version is 0.0.5.git20110719-0yavdr5~0.1.

I used to use the patch from here: <http://www.rst38.org.uk/vdr/>.
