[vdr] subtitle problem with 1.3.38

Hi all,

After running my current previous vdr setup (1.3.22) for quite a while,
I decided to give a new version a try. Otherwise it looks good (after
finding out that "modprobe capability" did wonders to set_cap
problems), but recording of the subtitles fails. Or at least displaying
the them... 

What happens is that the subtitles of the recorded program are not
visible. Instead, if the "live" program being broadcasted during
viewing of the recording has subtitles, they are visible. Anyone know
what's wrong here? I think I read about something similar earlier, but
all I could find concerned the ttxtsub plugin.

As the title says, I'm trying to use vdr 1.3.38, with subtitles-0.3.8.
I tried Rolf's patches,




but neither of them works. The "Live" subtitles work fine.

Best Regards,
