It was reported by users running their server 24x7.
But I dont know about the current status.

The mechanics used in EEPG look suspicious, it is using a repetitive
file load scheme for the tables originating from dark times where these
were not yet 100% available.

The VDR patch approach puting these tables into the compiled code once
has been suggested for EEPG, but did stay in some experimental branch,
you may want to take a look at the EEPG GIT.
