[vdr] BUG or ChangeRequest : Don't follow links when deleting recordings

VDR is checking regularily if there are any Deleted recordings lying
around and then deleting them. This is OK and very nice :)

But if you use more than one disk for recordings it allways wakes up the
second disk even if there are _no_ deleted recordings on that disk! VDR
is apparently not only looking for directories with the name *.del ?
(find /video0 -name "*.del" -type d)

Maybe it can be fixed in a way that VDR is not folllowing links when
checking if a dir is empty or only searches for "*.del" directories.

It would be nice if the second (, third ...) disk could be left sleeping
as they then will "live longer" :)

Thanks :)
