[vdr] VDSB with Kernel 2.6.13

I got something I desperately need help with:
I have got one FF card plus 3 Nova CI Budget Cards, usually using the latest
driver, firmware and VDR versions.
After having upgraded to Kernel 2.6.13, I get the dreaded "Video Data Stream
Broken" error as soon as a recording starts.
Vanilla VDR 1.3.32 (no plugins besides remote) with "WAIT_FOR_TUNER_LOCK"
reports "no dvb card available for recording" instead:
Sep 20 17:40:44 [vdr] timer 5 (1 1740-2040 '@TITLE EPISODE') start
Sep 20 17:40:44 [vdr] record
Sep 20 17:40:49 [vdr] ERROR: device 2 has no lock, can't attach receiver!
Sep 20 17:40:49 [vdr] ERROR: Keine freie DVB-Karte zum Aufnehmen!

The log reports 4 video devices found.
When switching back to 2.6.12 everything works fine again (same driver, same
firmware)...no problem recording from 4 different transponders...
Of course I also tried the latest (yesterday's) CVS driver and the latest
Firmware (fb2620).
>From looking at dmesg I can tell the cards' IRQ assignments have changed,
but still each card uses its own one.
Also, they still share their IRQs with the very same other PCI devices.
szap seems to be able to tune, though, as it reports FE_HAS_LOCK on all 4
cards when tuning to "Das Erste".
Any hints on how to debug this further?
