same for me here. Seems to me like an unsolved NPTL problem,  
because it only happens, if I don't use LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1.  
So as a workaround, I do. It happens also in all older 1.3.x vdr  
versions, for me.  
The problem remains steady through complete system upgrades like  
RedHat 9, Fedora Core 2-4. Therefore through many kernel and  
glibc versions.  
BTW Watchdog Timer is 60 secs. Should be more than enough and  
solved all previous problems for me. Since version 1.0.  
System contains 2x DVB-S 1.3 Cards and one DVB-S 1.5 as primary card 
modded to 4 MB. Kernel is with CVS Driver. Dist is FC4.
