It isn't working really well for my use case (dish position): while the
dish is moving I'm trying to call QueueMessage either with Seconds=0 and
Seconds=-1. Timeout is -1 (so that vdr should display the message no
matter what). Instead of a steady message with the position updating in
real time I just see a flash with the (same) position for a couple of
messages, then the message disappears to show a new one with a new position.

this one would have worked :-(
