Forgot to add that if I remove epg.data or truncate it to zero before
starting vdr the problem goes reproducibly away, on 2 different machines.
Hence my question "is there a way to safely truncate epg.data to a certain
(safe) length". 

I'll try some measurements asap, i.e. which epg.data sizes make vdr crash
