[vdr] Rotor plugin crashing with valid data in diseqc.conf

Any more ideas on this? Not sure why rotor plugin would even need to look at
the diseqc.conf. For moving the dish on channel switch, it can get the sat
location from the 4th entry in the channels.conf. Why would it need to deal
with diseqc commands in the diseqc.conf when it was fine with them before?
Anything chang in 1.5.x that would require a change like this? because the
plugin is crashing the same way with 1.4.6. So it must have somthing to do
with changes to make it work with 1.5.x
