Thanks for your tip. Just when I was about to give it a try, the attached 
patch was added to the gentoo vdr ebuild which totally fixed my problems. So 
far, no more crashes at all.

Both patches (the one I attached and the one you pointed me to) work on the 
same area... this one though doesn't revert the changes but instead fixes 
them. :-)

I hope this helps others too... and I sure hope this gets into the next 
xinelibout release since it seems to be a pretty common problem now. :-(

Thanks again,
