Here is an example of the error in the syslog:

Feb 20 10:28:06 sid vdr[7544]: mp3: player thread started (pid=7544)
Feb 20 10:28:08 sid vdr[4248]: error reading '/dev/input/event2'
Feb 20 10:28:11 sid vdr[7545]: ERROR: thread 81926 won't end (waited 3 seconds) 
- canceling it...
Feb 20 10:28:22 sid vdr[7544]: mp3: player thread ended (pid=7544)

How to reproduce:

Put an image file in a directory with a matching mp3 file.  This error occurs 
the first time the image is converted to a mpg file.  Once the cache file 
exists, the error does not happen any more.

I would also like to add that everything *appears* to work correctly from a 
users standpoint.  The only problem is the error in the syslog (but VDR does not 
actually shutdown).
