There is a known issue that switching to tickmodes makes xine pause for 
quite a while (several frames).

Strange is, that you have that large numbers in CLEAR(...). I'd say, 
vdr-xine and input_vdr.[ch] do not match. The number in brackets is a 
sequence number, and typically it matches the number which vdr-xine 
outputs. I've used it to debug some deadlock situations before I've 
released 0.7.3.

Whenever there is a clock error, you're lost. You'll have to wait until 
  cur_vpts reaches next_vpts before playback continues.
