when running the plugin (actually vdr) in debug-mode, I get the 
following messages on the console (the plugin-thread again locks the 
computer with 99% CPU-usage):

"mgr: background scan thread started (pid=3868)
mgr: scanning (id3) somemp3-file.mp3
mad: id3-scan, lost sync 4952594c 45425343 SOME_COMMENTS_TAG
mad: id3-scan, lost sync 00000000 07000000
mgr: waiting for bgr release ... (pass2=0 nono=(nil) scan=0x8299b30)"

Maybe this helps a little ?!
