So it is not the small buffers of the softdevice CVS version.

To me it looks like the network connection of the streamdevice gets
lost, which in the end causes the crash.
I know that on my computer switching from/to fullscreen repeatly takes a
lot of CPU power and almost blocks anything else. I never had any
crashes when trying this with the softdevice alone, only messages where
vdr complained about full buffers.
But maybe the loss of the CPU power causes the disconnect?
