I have tested your patch severl times in a row just now and while VDR
did not crash once, mplayer playback was aborted about 20% of the time
when the timer was triggered.  This doesn't (or hasn't so far) happen
with Anssi's patch however.  What are the differences between when/how
he closes the file descriptors and when/how you are?

Many thanks Stefan & Anssi!
