[vdr] VDR not starting properly with softdevice on boot

I have Fedora Core 6 and vdr installed using yum. The problem is that it 
takes all the cpu time after boot and I have to restart vdr to make it 
run properly. I have vdr-1.4.4 with softdevice-0.3.1 and 
subtitles-0.4.0. My cpu is PIII 550MHz and I use softdevice with Matrox 
G400 (and DirectFB). After restarting vdr it works fine but that is not 
very convenient :) I've tried changing the point when vdr starts by 
modifying the init scripts chkconfig values.

After restarting vdr cpu load is about 60%.

Any hints? I.e. how/when should matroxfb kernel module be loaded? Now I 
load it in rc.modules.
