I managed to work around this problem with the attached patch 
(Apparently CmdTUNE deletes and recreates m_LiveStreamer, but nobody 
starts it again). I don't know if the patch has any side effects. Maybe 
streamdev's maintainer can see what's the problem and make a proper fix.

The debuglogs are in the original message.
