I quite often see programs named (null) in the EPG list. It probably means
that VDR has taken a NULL title and sprintf():ed it into a string that
gets displayes, and the NULL has been replaced with the string "(null)".
Seems to happen after a restart where some ongoing program can't be found
anymore or for "something" that is shown between 00:00 and 06:00. VDR
doesn't crash when viewing more detailed infofor these events, there just
isn't any extra info available. So it's more of a cosmetic issue.
