Ok, then I misunderstood. I did try to make vdr start later by changing 
its start order Now anyway network is started before vdr.

Vdr is taking about 60% of cpu time with softdevice on my 550MHz PIII. I 
ment that maybe 550 is too slow when vdr is started in the system 
initialization causing network to start slower and thus making it a 
problem. Maybe if I had waited long enough it would have stabilized.
