Oh, that's a really bad way of doing things for me : it seems my
vdrwatchdog initiate a "initializing full VDR restart".

I only got those "problem" needing a restart of vdr at boot, so the new
implementation will never work for me.

Is there an easy way to have the 1.4.x way which always worked for me ?
