I'm trying to display an OSD message from a separate thread within a plugin to
indicate when some background action has finished. The message should pop up

I tried it with the new service interface. The thread calls a service of the
plugin passing the message. The service itself calls
This works fine, but sometimes crashes VDR in cSkins::Message. I've found a
way to reproduce it:
When the main menu is displayed and the message pops up then pressing BACK
while the message still is displayed crashes VDR. In this case the problem is
cSkinDisplay::Current() is NULL. Don't know if this is a bug or just the
result of my wrong usage ;-)
Is there any other way to display a message from a thread?
