I suggest replacing that line with
  value = Value ? strdup(Value) : NULL;
which _should_ show up other instances without crashing vdr - printf() and
friends will handle it nicely, at least.

|Value| is getting the default value for NoneString, set when calling the
constructor for cMenuEditChanItem in the constructor for cMenuEditTranItem.
