I cannot say, because when I built my vdr the minimum cpu I could find
was a 1600MHz Duron (underclocked to 1400), way oversized for the task
at hand. I managed to get the dxr3 more or less working with a pentium
100 though (only for testing purposes, not very useable, but that's 
probably because that machine has only 16megs of ram).

I'm using 2.6, cannot tell about other dxr3 users

Considering that many people here manage to get a dxr3 working, albeit
with some problems but not the complete lock-up you reported, I'd say
this is the most probable cause...

...or this one ;-)
I'd rule out the vdr version, since I'm also using 1.3.23
